Rainbow heART Chain ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงก❤️

I gotta tell you, rainbow any and everything makes my heart so happy. So naturally, making this rainbow heART chain decor was truly enjoyable for me! This fun little project evolved from a heART chain activity I did with my students a few years ago. For that activity students were given strips of white drawing paper, asked the color/decorate both sides of it, then it was added into a hallway heART chain display!

This time around I decided to make something on my own.. but this could definitely be done with students. Not only could it just be a fun extra time activity, but you could also make it into a color lesson by having students arrange their paper strips into rainbow order.
The paper that I used for this project was Pacon Tru-Ray Sulphite Construction Paper.
I used the following colors: Yellow, Gold, Orange, Festive Red, Holiday Red, Magenta, Violet, Purple, Blue, Turquoise, Holiday Green, and Brilliant Lime.

So how do you make these heART chains? Simple! First cut a bunch of strips of paper (I cut mine to 1"x9" strips), fold them in half, then start stapling! Check out the video below for a demo.

Now sit back and enjoy the rainbowy goodness!

Of course I tried out some other arrangements as well.



  1. could this be done with glue sticks instead of staplers? I have one stapler in my classroom. thanks

    1. I don't think it would work well with glue sticks.
