To me a rainbows represent love and family.

When I was a little girl, my father told me that rainbows are a blessing to us, a glimpse of what heaven is like. That memory is a favorite of mine, and with Father's Day right around the corner, I thought I'd share my rainbow colored Father's Day gift idea,

Matchbox Mosaic!

If your house is anything like mine, it's riddled in little cars.

Gather all these die cast automobiles and let's make something cool!

The kids will love being a part of this project!

Step 2: Sort Em!

This is a great learning activity for the littles too!

Write a message, or create a picture by placing your cars close together, working your way out.

Step 4: Give to Dad!

You can either have the mosaic set up to surprise him, or take photos, and have it framed! Either way the memory will last!

Happy Father's Day!
