If you’re looking for a creative rainbow craft for St. Patrick’s Day, this Rainbow Sponge Painting is perfect for all ages! This fun art project explores color mixing and blending. We even added in some glitter (of course!) and a pot of gold for the perfect St. Patrick’s Day touch.

Black Glitter Foam
Cut a square shape from the sponge for each color of the rainbow that you will use.
Dab a sponge into paint and stamp it onto the canvas to start creating the shape of a traditional rainbow or one shooting across the sky.
Continue to do the above step until your rainbow is complete. (Don’t forget to use a new sponge for each color paint. Allow the paint to overlap a bit to get a nice blend of colors.)
Allow the paint to dry completely.
Cut cloud shapes from black cardstock. Use a sponge to dab white paint across the entire cloud, leaving a small black border around the edges. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Cut the shape of a black pot from black glitter foam. You can also use the black cardstock if you can’t find black glitter foam.
Glue the clouds onto the rainbow, slightly hanging off of the canvas.
Glue a black pot onto the cloud.
Spread a bit of glue above the pot and add gold glitter. (The chunky stuff looks a lot like gold coins!) Allow the glue to dry.
