It's raining here (can I just tell you how much I LOVE it?! I'm serious!) and just yuck outside. I decided to try our hand at a craft today. I'm not one of those people who have tons and tons of craft making supplies. I have construction paper. And markers.
So, what do you do with construction paper and markers when it's raining? Why, you make umbrellas, of course!
This is one of those kids crafts we've all probably seen somewhere...at your kids school, online etc. I am not hugely crafty but this was so simple! Just cut a paper plate in half, let your kids decorate it, then cut out the handle for the umbrella out of the construction paper of their choice, tape it to the plate and then cut out and glue on your rain drops! Easy!
Recently, we put up an art display wall in our playroom. I'll enlist Chris' help on typing up a tutorial for this being as he's the one who actually constructed it. I was too busy watching Monsters Inc with the kids, haha. I have a short attention span.
We picked up the two side pieces of art 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby and we display the kids art in between them!
