Rainbowpots Step 2

Step 2: Using your paint brush, paint a rainbow with each color of paint onto your pot. You can do stripes that are horizontal or vertical. You could even paint polka dots or other fun designs. Let these pots dry completely.

Now fill these with gold-wrapped treats, to represent gold at the end of a rainbow. You could also plant a green plant or shamrock plant inside these colorful pots – perfect to celebrate the coming weeks.
