I do not know how it was in other parts of m the world today, but here in our little ol’ town it was rainy and gloomy. I had planned on making a craft with the girls and thought, why not learn something in the process! Enter our dearly loved flap book What Makes Rain?
I am a part time Usborne Books and More Consultant. My children eat these books up. Who am I kidding, I do too! Their favorite right now are the flap books. Each flap book has little bits of information under a flap. This specific one was about the rain. What makes it? What are rainbows? What is the sun? It answered many different questions. Along with this book I put together a little craft.
As you can see it was cute but simple enough my two year old could do most of it on her own! To make your own umbrella picture you need these materials. 1 long strip of colored paper. 1 white piece of paper. Yellow construction paper cut into a triangle to look like a jacket. (or whatever color you want!) Construction paper cut into boots. A marker and some paint. And googly eyes. Viola! Set those kiddos free and see what they come up with!
Here are our girls busy working on their creations. Look at S’s serious concentration face. Too cute!
And now here are the three beautiful creations made by the girls. I bet you can’t tell whose is whose! ha! I love how the progression in drawing skill goes up through the three girls. Our youngest S was so proud of her self for the little circle she made and the sliver of yellow hair on her girls head!
Have fun! and if you decide to do this craft, drop a photo below, we would love to see yours!
Until next time xoxo,
