Paper Plate Umbrella Art

Recently, we’ve had a lot of rain! I know the saying is “April showers bring May flowers”, but this way it is more like “May showers make for long hours”. To pass the time, we made this fun rain inspired craft!

Materials Used

White Construction Paper

Decorative Paper

Black Construction Paper

A Paper Plate




The prep work for this craft will only take a minute! I cut the paper plate in half and then cut out raindrops from the decorative paper. To finish getting ready, I cut a thick J shape from the black construction paper.

Next, I gave my daughter crayons so she could color the paper plate.

After she was done coloring, I helped her glue the J shape on paper. Next, we glued on the paper plate.

This tee was #Gifted. You can get your own here and use code NSCM10 to save on your purchase!

To finish this easy art project, I had my daughter put glue all over the white paper and then glue on the raindrops.
