Not only are rainbows beautiful, they were sent as a promise from God. These quick and simple little treats are perfect for Easter, March, or even Rainbow themed parties!
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. Genesis 9:13
On a recent trip to Sam’s Club, a demonstrator was making these adorable treats and they were so perfect, they had to be shared! The entire month of March we see rainbows with a pot of gold at the end. During Springtime, they are prevalent throughout Easter and frequently seen across the clouds in the sky.
Being that I’m a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and am married to a Free Mason, I must also mention The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls. If you’ve got a daughter, I definitely suggest looking into it. It’s a wonderful organization to foster faith, hope, and charity toward others. I’ll post more below in case you are interested.
For these cute little rainbows, the directions are super simple. Even the little ones can do this one. Busy work crafting for Spring break perhaps?
- Graham Crackers
- Smarty Stop Sour Candy Belts
- Hershey’s Gold Bite Sized Chocolates
- Green coconut flakes (if desired)
- Break graham crackers in half.
- Ice a line about 3/4 of an inch long on opposite corners of the crackers.
- If desired, add a little green coconut as ‘grass’.
- Secure the candy belt onto both strips of icing.
- Add you ‘bar of gold’ on the end.
- Eat and enjoy!

About the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls
Rainbow members are between the ages of 11 and 20 years old. Rainbow welcomes everyone, regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. You do not have to be Christian to join, but parents can be assured that the values promoted by Rainbow are positive and uplifting. The lessons encourage members to be strong in spirit and kind in heart, respectful toward nature, and giving toward all humanity.
In 1922, Rainbow was created for young women whose fathers were members of the Masonic Lodge, and their friends. Although a Christian minister named W. Mark Sexson founded the organization, today the leaders of Rainbow Girls respect and welcome all girls from every religion. Their main focus is more on the spiritual principles of being a kind and caring person. While the Rainbow practices and programs continue to evolve, the basic teachings of faith, hope, and charity remain a cornerstone of this dynamic girl’s youth group.
Today, there are more than 850 assemblies across the world that have bimonthly meetings. This is how the members learn standard meeting protocol and parliamentary procedure.
Adults are always present to provide support, guidance, and help interpret the rules. Members also learn to memorize meaningful lectures and to be prepared for extemporaneous speeches. Some meetings conclude with a presentation or unique entertainment.
In addition, members and advisors work on different service projects throughout the year.
Since November of 1951, world headquarters for the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls has been located in McAlester, Oklahoma. This magnificent building was constructed for Rainbow Girls and funded by Rainbow Girls. It represents what can be accomplished when girls are empowered with knowledge, enlightened by travel, and energized by their own inner spirit.
***Many chapters now have a pledge program for girls ages 9-11.***
