rainbow pins

I asked for ideas a few years ago and thought I would ask again. Our preschool is named Rainbow Road and at the end of the year we give each child some kind of rainbow pin that we have made. If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them. Thanks a bunch!

RE: rainbow pins

I made a bunch once using the little 1" balsa wood heart cutouts that you can buy in a big package at Michaels'. I painted them white (lay them all out on sheets of newsprint paper and spray them all at once), drew a 3 color rainbow with paint pens and then put first names on with a very fine black paint pen. Glue a pin back on and there you go!

oops, I hit the key too soon....

I meant to add that you could do the three color rainbow as a squiggly line diagonally across the heart to make the "Rainbow Road".

Thanks, Jaybird!
We made similar ones several years ago, but painted the stripes with brushes, which I found difficult. I think paint pens would be much easier.

RE: rainbow pins

Another option would be to string rainbow colors of pony or other beads and attach them so they hang down behind a wood cutout. You could use various shapes for the wood cutout depending upon what you wanted. You could even glue cotton balls to a cutout for clouds.

I've seen people make cute pins out of shrinky dinks. You could make some and then put glitter glue on them afterwards to make them sparkly.
