Step 1: Download and Print the Free Umbrella Craft Template
Download the Free Umbrella Craft Template. These pages include everything you need to make this fun craft. In the next step, you will be stapling the templates to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Umbrella Craft Shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
Step 3: How to Assemble this Umbrella Craft for Toddlers
I recommend having a finished craft so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- First, glue the umbrella top onto the brown handle.
- Next, glue the center part of the umbrella onto the large umbrella shape. Tip: it’s easier when you match the bottom points first.
- Finally, glue on decorations or use a marker to draw decorations onto your umbrella.
- Optional: glue your finished umbrella onto a sheet of construction paper.
- Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
