To make the paper plate umbrella:
1) Cut a paper plate in half, paint it, and allow it to dry completely. (You can also add some "scalloping" at the bottom, but this step is optional.)
2) Glue the paper plate to a piece of paper.
3) Draw a handle on the umbrella. (My son insisted on using a pipe cleaner, but it takes a lot of glue to make it stick. I think drawing it is easier, but I leave it up to you!)
4) Crumple up bits of tissue paper, and glue them onto the paper to make raindrops and puddles.
Cute, right? After our craft we did a little printing practice. If you want to practice printing the letter U with your little one, you can right-click on the picture below, save it to your computer, and print it.
Fun, right? Next up... the Letter V!
