Umbrella Crafts for Kids

Four rainy day-themed projects for kids to try at home this week – including a coffee filter umbrella and April showers umbrella.

As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” We all tend to get pretty excited about the resulting flowers, but what about a little love for those showers?! Rain brings us the chance for puddle jumping, showing off fun umbrellas and going for a walk around the block in brand new rain boots. For those of us who don’t mind a little rain, this week’s roundup is dedicated to a must-have April accessory: umbrellas.

DIY Paper Umbrellas

Cupcake baking cups are a staple in any craft supply stash. They can be transformed into a variety of things – like a mini umbrella as shown here by My Teen Entertainment Guide.

Coffee Filter Umbrellas

You don’t need dye to turn coffee filters into color umbrellas. Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles uses a trusty set of markers and a spray bottle to achieve this dip-dyed look.

April Showers Umbrella

It’s OK to open this umbrella up indoors! The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman shows you how to make an umbrella mobile in this DIY post.

Rainy Day Duck Craft

Who loves rain more than a curious toddler? A duck! Crafty Morning gave this sweet duck a rainy day makeover in this adorable printable project.
