3D Printable Umbrella Spring Craft

“The month of April, traditionally a rainy period, gives way to May, when flowers will bloom because of water provided to them by the April rains”

April Showers bring May Flower – Wiktionary

To celebrate all aspects of Spring, we’ve created a fun 3D Printable Umbrella Spring Craft for kids to make during the rainy season.

This Spring activity can be split into two parts: Arty Crafty Kids will love exploring materials and printing techniques to create a rainy backdrop and then colouring, cutting and sticking to complete their pictures with a 3D Umbrella.

It’s a great way for kids to combine art and craft into one complete piece, while experimenting with shape and textures.

Step 1:

Let’s create a rainy backdrop!

There a various approaches to this element of the activity. Here, we’ve simply printed circles with a round cardboard object (a former pencil pot).

Arty Crafty Kids may also enjoy printing with their finger tips, bubble wrap, a potato stamp cut as a raindrop or with splats!
