April showers bring May flowers! And let’s celebrate the rain instead of the flowers! Purchase umbrellas from a discount store and clean out your craft closet to provide residents with a choice of paints, fabrics, pompons, streamers, stickers, and more.
Have participants work on their own or in groups to make a beautiful umbrella art piece. To end your program, hang the umbrellas from the ceiling of your activity room or hallway. Invite residents, staff, and family members to check out your Umbrella Art Show.
Serve Rainy Day Cocktails (any drink with a paper umbrella garnish will do), and you could even end with a showing of Singin’ in the Rain.
