Let Your Light Shine Cloud and Rainbow Craft

One of the greatest things we can instill in our children is positive self-image and self-love. There is a difference between vanity and self-love and it is imperative for our children to know the importance of loving and valuing themselves for we cannot expect others to know our true value if we don’t know acknowledge it ourselves.

This simple craft is inspired by the way that brilliant rays of sunshine often peak out from behind the clouds. The cloud represents our physical bodies, and the rainbow rays represent the brilliant attributes that each of us have dwelling inside!

It is our responsibility and our privilege to help children not only identify these positive attributes, but also encourage them to express themselves and share their unique gifts and talents with the world.

Materials Needed

  • White paper
  • Various rainbow colored construction paper
  • Markers
  • Glue

Print or draw a cloud shape and cut it out of the white paper.

Have your child write their name in the center of their cloud.

Distribute strips of colored paper and have your child write something they love about themselves on each piece.

Glue the strips of paper to back of the cloud!

Use this project as an opportunity to discuss all of your child’s positive character traits!

 

Happy Crafting!
