Emma’s rainbow party games and activities

Surprise!! It’s part two of last week’s epic rainbow party! The last post was all about the food and decor and super-adorable rainbow themed outfits. ; ) Now, here are the games and activities for that Emma’s mom, Sara, came up with to keep the kiddos entertained at the party.

Pin the pot o’ gold on the rainbow game
Sara made the rainbow using tissue squares from Oriental Trading, and as you can see, the fluffy clouds are made from cotton balls. The little pots o’ gold (not pictured) were made from black sticky foam paper.

Rainbow photo booth
The photo booth sign is made from a free printable that you can download here. It’s mounted on heavy black cardboard and tied with ribbon – super easy!

Sara says, “The photo booth props were so fun to collect.  The masks and hats were from Ikea. The dollar store had TONS of stuff… googly eye glasses, huge sunglasses, those old school glasses with the mustache, boas, you name it!  I also just raided the kids’ closets for tutus, hats, beads, tiaras, etc. For the stuff on sticks I used BBQ skewers, and just found things on google images like the lips and smiles. I also cut out mustaches from black foam and stuck them on sticks too.”

Rainbow art station
An art station is perfect for letting the kids play with all the colors of the rainbow! Sara set up a few different crafts for the kids to make, including rainbow bead necklaces (using rainbow pony beads and laces). Older kids also made name necklaces using alphabet beads.

Paint your own rainbow bags
Each kid got to decorate their own treat bag with fabric paint, and then the bags were hung up to dry during the party. Of course this would be a great activity for any party, but at a rainbow party, you can say that the bags are for collecting gold from the end of the rainbow!

Maybe it’s my art background talking, but this just looks like so much fun!! Thank you so much for all the great ideas, Sara! : )
