Description : -Feb 10 is Umbrella Day so celebrate by playing Umbrella Ball and/or Umbrella Painting!
Visit this website and print our some lyrics and the history of umbrellas to read to your residents http://www.swycaffer.com/divpeg/febru/umbrella.html
Have the residents sit in a circle.
Open up an umbrella and place it in the center of the circle upside down.
Give the first player 3 balls (tennis, golf, nerf, etc..).
Ask the player to throw each ball into the umbrella.
Give a point to every ball the resident successfully gets into the umbrella.
The first resident who gets to 10 points, wins the game.
Umbrellas (smaller the better)
Fabric paints (various colors)
Purchase reasonably priced nylon umbrellas, one for each resident.
First the residents will decide on a design concept for their umbrella.
They may want to use chalk to outline their design onto the umbrella.
Then each resident will open up the umbrella and start to paint away.
You may need volunteers to help the resident with this project!
Have the residents make lady bugs, stripes, flowers, creating unique umbrellas.
To make this project easier get stamps allowing for easier design concepts.
The residents can keep the umbrellas for themselves or give them away as presents to family members.
