How To Decorate Your Umbrella Template
Colouring – This is the easiest way to decorate all of our templates and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that! Grab colouring pencils, pens or paint and design a pattern for your umbrella. You could even draw yourself under the umbrella if you like.
You could also cut out the finished umbrellas and use them for a classroom or preschool display board.
Add the rain – If you’ve coloured in your umbrella why not add some rain to the background using some paint. Make small dots using a cotton bud (q-tip) or some bubble wrap dipped in blue paint.
Make sure to leave space under the umbrella without paint as the umbrella should be keeping it dry!
Mosaic – Look for old magazines, comics and scraps of paper that you can cut up to make a mosaic on your umbrella.
I’d recommend doing each section in different colours but obviously go with what your child fancies making. Mosaic can be a great way to practice some scissor skills too if you want.
