Arty Crafty Kids

Sometimes a clean design looks better, but with this straw blowing rainbow art, it's best to color outside the lines. Kids can make this rainbow to celebrate Pride by swapping their paintbrushes for straws! Simply pour the paint on some cardstock like you would to make a rainbow and then use a straw to blow it all around the paper. No matter how many they make, each one will have its own unique look.

Rhythms of Play

Add a little magic to your family's Pride celebration with these rainbow ribbon fairy wands. To get the perfect star shape, Rhythms of Play uses a star cookie cutter to trace out the shape on a piece of felt with a fabric marker. If you have other cookie cutters around, like hearts or flowers, feel free to trace those shapes as well so kids can turn them into wands. Once the shapes are all set, kids can finish up the wand with a bright trail of rainbow streamers.

Kids Craftroom

The colors in the rainbow Pride flag have a bigger meaning than being just a rainbow. Each color represents an important trait such as life (red), healing (orange), and harmony and peace (blue). Show your little ones the meaning behind each color while they create their own rainbow using their hands. As you paint on each color, have an open discussion about the different meanings of the colors and how they all come together to form a beautiful rainbow.

One Little Project

Looking for a quick craft to get in the Pride spirit with the kids? We've got you covered with this rainbow craft. All you need is about 10 minutes and a bunch of construction paper, scissors, and a stapler to put the whole thing together. Since it's so fast to make, make sure to create a bunch. That way, you can hang them up around the house and in your windows to put your Pride decorations on display. 

Rainbow Shaving Cream Marbled Art

Shaving cream and craft paint is the pairing you never knew you needed. The two work together — in a rather messy way — to create a marbled design, allowing for one-of-a-kind works of art. This month, you and the kids can use that same technique to create rainbow art for Pride. Head on over to Hello Wonderful and follow the tutorial to make a rainbow in the shaving cream. Switch it up by using different colors to make prints and then cut out designs from the marbled paper to make unique Pride cards and art.  

DIY Sharpie Tie Dye Shoes

Fun Loving Families

Kids can show up to the community Pride parade in style with a custom pair of rainbow shoes. To get started, you'll need to provide them with a simple pair of white canvas sneakers, a bunch of different colored permanent markers, and some rubbing alcohol. Once you've got your supplies ready to go, set them loose to design whatever they can think of! They could stay simple and go with the basic rainbows, or bring out their inner Coco Chanel and craft an elaborate design. Grab more ideas for designs over on Fun Loving Families.
