The Secret to Enjoying the Rain
It's pouring! So come in from puddle stomping and make spring crafts for kids. With these fun and easy projects, your child will never say the rain is boring. And you will stay dry.
Oh no! Here comes the creepy crawlers! The icky squishy bugs who want to eat anything green in the garden. Quick! Let's keep the kids inside before they start looking for the nasty things! Let's get them crafting! Well, not all bugs are bad. Some are actually quite good. Some are even pretty to look at.
While crafting you can teach your child about the life cycle of insects. They can make bees and caterpillars and other things too. These bugs will not annoy you.
So your kids don't like bugs. Well, there are other spring crafts
for kids that you can do. Make some flowers to brighten your home or
make a rainbow to remember the promise of sunshine.

The Dripping Umbrella
Make the rain go away with this colorful umbrella for your window.
You will need;
- White copy paper
- Wax paper
- Tissue paper in different colors
- Glue stick
- Scrap of construction paper
To make your umbrella pattern fold the white paper in half. Draw a curved line from the top of the fold to the cut edge. Then draw a "w" shape for the bottom of the umbrella.
Use the paper pattern to cut out the shape from wax paper.
Cut or rip small pieces of tissue paper. With a glue stick glue the pieces on the wax paper. .
Trim any pieces that go over the wax paper
Cut a "J" shape from construction paper 10 inches long.
With yarn measure from the top center to the points at the bottom. Cut a piece of yarn for each point. With glue (I used a glue stick) glue the yarn from the center to a point. Repeat three more times.
Glue the "J" on the back of the umbrella.
