I thought of a way to use the left-over triangles from the kites last week!
**Warning: This is VERY messy!!
- Construction paper or left-over kite pieces
- Corn syrup
- Blue food coloring
- Craft stick
1) Cut the triangle to look like an umbrella (or just use the triangle shape for your umbrella – see the green umbrella at the end). Paste onto a piece of paper. Have your child draw themselves under the umbrella (or cut out a photo of your child and glue it down).
2) Mix light corn syrup with blue food coloring. Using a craft stick, drip or dab the syrup on the paper like raindrops. Allow to dry for several days (big blobs might not dry very well).
3) Glue on a piece of construction paper or cardstock for a more “finished” look.
