Cardboard Tube Rainbow Blowers

Cardboard Tube Rainbow Blower

After crafting these cute St. Patrick’s Day Toilet Paper Rolls, we still had some left and decided to create something just as fun: rainbow blowers!

These Cardboard Tube Rainbow Blowers are a great craft to welcome Spring, celebrate the luck of the Irish, or add to your Weather lessons.

It is also a great way to recycle your rolls and turn them into something fun.

The best part is that they are an easy activity for kids of all ages. They will love playing with them or using them as windsocks on a windy day.

In this post, I’ll show you all you need to create a rainbow blower and how to do it with your kids.

You can also download our clouds and raindrops template at the end of this post to make everything even easier.
