Rainbow Crafts for Spring

Drake’s preschool class had a rainbow-themed spring party right before Spring Break. The other class mom and I decided to make a rainbow fruit platter as part of the snack/decoration for the party. While the other mom worked on the mini Easter egg hunt, I was tasked with finding a craft to fit the rainbow theme.

10 under $10 Easter Basket Stuffers for Easter
