Add a touch of sparkle to your classroom—with handmade artwork students will love to display!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 1st grade / 3 - 6 years

You will need:


  1. Provide each student with a sheet of blue construction paper.
  2. Encourage students to spread glue across the top of the construction paper and stretch out cotton balls to make clouds.
  3. Give each student three paper muffin cups. Prompt students to cut or fold the cups in half to make umbrella tops and glue them to the construction paper background.
  4. Have students curve the ends of three pipe stems and attach them beneath the umbrellas to make the handles.
  5. Finally, encourage students to dab several dots of glue between the clouds and umbrellas; then help them sprinkle glitter onto the page to create raindrops.
  6. Display the finished artwork on a bulletin board titled “April Showers Bring May Flowers!”
