While I’m a big fan of this craft as it is, you can easily use it to launch other learning options, too. Here are some great options that you can do to complement this learning activity!
Create more letter U crafts
There are a plethora of letter U crafts for kids to explore beyond the umbrella craft. One alternative craft is creating an under-the-sea diorama with unbleached coffee filters and watercolor paints.
Younger children can enjoy cutting out and decorating unicorns from construction paper or foam sheets. Creating a ukulele out of cardboard and string for more advanced crafters provides a fun and creative challenge.
Additionally, using uncooked lasagna noodles, children can create unique and colorful necklaces or bracelets.
Go on a walk in the rain
Wait until it is raining (with no lightning or worry of bad weather!) and take the kids for a walk in the rain! This is the perfect way to talk about umbrellas and then put them to use!
Take turns holding the umbrella and then talk about how umbrellas work. You can even talk about how umbrellas are considered bad luck if opened up in a room or inside a house.
Umbrellas are also a great topic to discuss as they can help shield from rain and sun!
Make other letter U crafts
Creating a unique umbrella using construction paper and pipe cleaners for the handle is possible. Another option is making a UFO from a paper plate, aluminum foil, and markers.
Additionally, an underscore craft can be a fun way for children to practice handwriting and learn more about punctuation.
These letter U crafts offer a variety of hands-on opportunities for children to learn and play.
