It’s fun to play outside on a rainy day (puddles are hard to resist no matter your age!), but when it’s raining heavily, with cold, strong winds, it’s certainly more appealing to stay inside.

But you can still celebrate the rain and raindrops by making an umbrella.

Paint each section of the umbrella a different color and let dry.



Cut out the bottom of the panel you set aside for an umbrella handle and glue it to the bottom center of the back of the umbrella.

Turn the screen panel over and carefully tape each string to the bottom points of the screen. You can use a glue gun or clear tape.
