Mini Glitter Rainbow Pots

When I was a little girl I was in the play The Wizard of Oz. It’s been over 28 years but I remember the songs perfectly. My favourite song from the show was somewhere over the rainbow. Rainbows are beautiful and I love that a rainbow comes after the rain. I kind of relate that to myself. I have had some really tough times in life but the rainbow sure does appear in the end. Today we have a fantastic and easy rainbow themed craft. This is a great activity for young children and a great way to teach the colours, get creative and have fun crafting. Enjoy.

Let’s Make It

Paint one terra cotta pot with white school glue using a paintbrush. Do one section at a time.

Holding the pot with your fingers inside, sprinkle some glitter onto the glue on the pot with your other hand.

Continue to paint the glue on the pot and sprinkle the glitter on the glue until the entire pot is covered in a layer of glitter.

Repeat steps 1-3 with the rest of your pots and glitter colours.

Let the pots dry completely, and then knock the bottoms of the pots together gently over the rubbish bin or a paper plate to remove the excess glitter.

  1. These are so cute, all of the colours together look awesome. I would like them to sit across my kitchen window shelf as an Easter and Spring display. I know my older grandchildren would really like making them.

  2. So cute little pots of gold! I love the colorful shimmer! I will share this craft with my sister whose kids are still young. I am sure they’d love to “discover” these “pots of gold!” Maybe my sister would go all the way and make a paper rainbow too!

  3. OMG! These are SO cute and PERFECT for March! I don’t have kids but I’m a teacher and I know quite a few of my students would enjoy these so much! Thanks for sharing!
