  • Glue stick
  • Child-safe scissors
  • Decorative stickers (optional)

How to Make:

  1. Prepare the Card Base: Fold a piece of cardstock in half to create the card. Choose a color that will make a good background for your umbrella.
  2. Cut Out Umbrella Shape: Help your child cut an umbrella shape from a different colored piece of construction paper. If using scissors is difficult for them, you can pre-cut the shape for them to use. Use the image below.

3. Decorate the Umbrella: Allow your child to decorate the cut-out umbrella shape with crayons, markers, or stickers to personalize it. They can draw patterns or faces, or even add glitter for a sparkly touch.

4. Attach the Umbrella: Use a glue stick to attach the decorated umbrella shape to the front of the folded cardstock. Make sure it’s centered and pressed down firmly.

5. Add a Handle: Cut a thin strip of construction paper to serve as the handle of the umbrella. Glue this onto the card beneath the umbrella shape.
