Fantastic! I will do that with one of my students too. I love rainbows - I'm such a color freak.

These are adorable, and would be perfect for my handicraft class to whip up for a charity bazaar. For clarification, can you explain how you get it to gather and finish? Thanks in advance!

My daughter still has a couple of these that she made in 1st grade, her handwork teacher had them put a bell inside, the cats love them!
