Pot of Golden Treats - candy filled pot of goldAt the end of every rainbow is a pot of gold. The leprechaun left its powerful green hat that saves him from traps. It's caught in a trap and the princess was able to slide herself down the long rainbow. She fell into a pot of gold under thick clouds at the end of the rainbow where the leprechaun's hat was left.


That's the story running inside my mind while doing this craft.


Note : if you don't have this black container use the bottom of a plastic bottle and color with black paint.

  • assorted colors of construction paper (colors of the rainbow)
  • cotton
  • packs of chocolate coins
  • crayon/oil pastel
  • 1 black disposable container
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
