It's Raining Cats and Dogs! Craft

{"It's Raining Cats and Dogs!" by Mia, Age 4}
  • scissors
  • glue
  • tape
  • paper
  • paper cupcake liners
  • drinking straws
  • scalloped scissors (optional)
  • crayons/markers/colored pencils (optional)
  • cat and dog stickers (or magazine cutouts)

  1. Fold a cupcake liner in half and cut it apart with scissors OR trim along the straight edge with scalloped scissors. (One cupcake liner makes two umbrellas.)
  2. If desired, decorate the umbrellas with crayons, markers, or colored pencils.
  3. Cut a flexible drinking straw in half. The bendy part will become the umbrella's handle. Save the other half for another craft.
  4. Tape the straw to the back side of the cupcake liner.
  5. Glue the cupcake liner and straw to the paper. (Repeat steps 1-5 as many times as desired.)
  6. Add dog and cat stickers to the paper.
  7. Once the glue is dry, display your project.
