Easy Rainbow and Pot of Gold Craft

The other day I realized that I have office stickers in almost every color of the rainbow left over from other projects and that gave me an idea.  I went to the dollar store and bought some gold seals that are meant to be put on the flaps of envelopes.

This was a really easy project. We just arranged the office stickers into a rainbow shape, cut a pot shape from construction paper, and used the seals to represent gold coins.

Our finished projects:

To go along with our project we read The Story of the Leprechaun about a leprechaun and shoemaker who is so good at what he does that he collects a big pot of gold. Unfortunately, one of his customers would like the pot of gold for himself and traps the leprauchaun. The clever leprauchaun tricks the greedy man and relocates his pot of gold to the end of the rainbow where it will be safe.

Our shape leprechauns would be another great project for this book:

  10. Love this project, the stickers are SUCH a clever and kid friendly way to do it -- I think I have a stash of those Hallmark gold crown stickers somewhere, will have to dig them out for my 6 year old. I know she would love making one of these! Thank you so much for linking up and sharing on my blog today!!
