I brought an umbrella to class during our 4 Season Theme. The kids loved it! We pretended to go out in a drizzle, then rain, then heavy rain and finally a storm. We imagined being dragged up, up, up in the air!
Everyone wanted a turn to hold the umbrella. And when it was time to keep it, the kids begged to play with it more.
So while I allowed them to explore more of the umbrella, I prepared a quick craft activity.
I drew an umbrella and took out some craft sticks for handles.
You can download the template here.
Then some of the kids noticed what I was doing so We started painting.
We let it dry while we ate our snacks. I then cut out the umbrella and taped the craft stick on it.
Each kid had his/ her own umbrella!
Its time to go out in the rain!
But of course we have to pretend.
Rain seldom falls here in Qatar.
