Draw a pattern on a piece of paper for a rainbow (as big as you want) by drawing 6 half circle stripes. Sort all the Froot Loop cereals by color. When you are ready to glue the pieces down, apply a thin layer of glue over each stripe and apply one color to each line. Orders of the colors go from red, orange, yellow, green, blue, to purple.

Complete until all the colors are glued on.
