Easy and Cheap Craft

We made this craft a few weeks ago, and we may do a slightly different version this afternoon (flowers instead of rainbows).

If your house is anything like mine, you have a BILLION stickers all over the house. The kids enjoy simply placing the stickers on paper, but that gets old after awhile. So we came up with this idea and everyone had a great time doing this.

I have 7 children in my care during the day - and they range from 3-8 years. It's really hard finding projects that work for all ages and genders (the majority of my kids are 4 & 5 year old BOYS - who don't enjoy quiet projects. Let's be honest - they don't enjoy quiet ANYTHING). This project was so simple and such a hit!

The kids worked together to help everyone find the right color stickers. They got creative with what they used to make up with rainbow.

Best part, it just used construction paper and stickers - all which were already in the craft bins!
