Preschool umbrella craft
All you need to make this fun counting craft for kids are a few simple materials you probably already have laying around your house:
- white paper plate
- pipe cleaner – we used black
- markers in various colors
- beads – we used blue so they look like rain
The first step is to cut the paper plate in half. Now use your scissors to cut little scallops along the flat edge so there are 6 points.

Using a marker draw a line from each of the points to the top middle. We also traced around the entire plate edges to make it pop. Then number each quodrant 1-5 on half of the plate and on the other half 6-10.

Use crayons, markers, or colored pencils to color in each section of the umbrella. You can use any colors you like or shades of colors.

Now comes the math craft part. Turn your craft over and attach about 4″ of string hanging off the bottom of each of the numbered sections using your tape.

Now looking at the front side again, count the correct number of rain drops, beads, to fall on each section of the umbrella. So under the red section with the number 1 we added one bead to the string and tied a note so the bead didn’t fall off. Continue with the other sections for both of your umbrella parts.
Attach a pipe cleaner to the back of the project with tape and curve the end to be the umbrella handle.
