Umbrella Song
Tune: I'm A Little Teapot

Here's my new Umbrella.
Wide and high.
It keeps me cozy, warm and dry.
If the rain starts falling from the sky
Just open me up and you'll stay dry.



I put on my raincoat.
Pretend to put on coat
I put on my hat.
Put on hat
I put up my umbrella
fingertips touching over head
Just like that!

Show how an Umbrella Works: Take an umbrella outside and prop it up so that it is fairly sturdy. Show children how rain rolls off of an umbrella by using a flower waterer or spray bottle as rain.

You can buy Small Umbrellas at party supply stores (look in the baby and bridal shower area). Use your imagination on how to use them: art projects, matching and sorting games, etc. Supply Rainy Day Dress-Up Props including umbrellas and lots of supervision! Umbrella Match: Cut out pairs of umbrellas in several different colors and shapes. Have children try to match them.
