Raindrops on My Umbrella craft

Who says rain can’t be fun? Make a glistening umbrella and raindrop mobile to chase away the gloominess of a rainy day.

    Tear or cut the shape of several small umbrellas with handles from Crayola Color Wonder™ Paper. Pull the red pegs from the tubes of your Color Wonder Glitter Paint and discard. Use the sparkling colors to decorate your umbrellas. Make stripes dots, swirls, or any decorations you like—you are the designer.

    Create a stand with a cardboard tube and a cardboard square. Attach Color Wonder Paper to the tube and base with Crayola School Glue. Decorate them with glitter paint. Glue tube to base. Air-dry.

    Tear a large cloud. Paint it to look like a cloud. Glue your cloud to the top of the tube. Hang your umbrellas from the cloud by taping them with string or ribbon.

    Attach craft jewel raindrops with glue. To make grass for the base, use green Glitter Paint on Color Wonder Paper. Rip the grass into small pieces and glue onto base.

    Wow, you made a beautiful rainy day scene! Place it on a table whenever it rains to remind you of the fun you had making it.
