So, I think that this is a great time to explore rainbow crafts and activities. We are still stuck in dull, grey winter.. and with the sparkle of Christmas behind us, we need something to cheers us up. Of course, you have St Patricks Day around the corner and rainbow crafts are great as St Particks Day Crafts too.. or you may want to revisit the post in the Summer.. Rainbow crafts are just great all year round!!!
