Step 2: Arrange them in the right order of the rainbow, attach them together and glue them on the piece of cardboard. They don’t have to lay on the cardboard, they need to be in round shape creating a rainbow. To attach them on the cardboard I’ve used hot glue gun.

Step 3: To cover the cardboard use pink cotton balls. To attach them on the cardboard also use some hot glue.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
