Kathleen and her students have  been getting a little bit of rain in Idaho, so it seemed like a perfect time to make a rainy day picture. Using two half-sheets of paper, students made kids carrying umbrellas. We started with triangle coats and rectangle arms. Students then designed their own umbrellas and handles. After adding boots, the kids painted raindrops - we used liquid waterpaint and long q-tips for the brushes.

This is a fun project whether the weather is rainy or not! For detailed directions and a portfolio page, check out our Spring unit.
