We’re always excited when the spring thaw begins to take over and we can finally shake off the winter blues! We also get to start preparing for spring rain showers. Which means its time to debut our umbrella designs for spring.
Our favorite blue umbrella for spring 2013 is our T6 Navy Tulip Travel Umbrella.
It’s always nice to have a small umbrella to tuck into your cute clutch and dash out the door to join friends. That why our Cute Daisy Purple Travel Umbrella makes the perfect companion for a rainy spring day!
Need a black umbrella that matches every outfit you have? Then you can’t afford to let our Black Brushwood Travel Umbrella slip through your clutches. This adorable umbrella makes a statement while always keeping you dry!
Do rainy days get you down? Make you feel like you have cabin fever because the rain is keeping you locked inside? Do your little ones think it’s a free pass to park themselves in front of the TV? Well have no fear, we have the answer to your rainy day blues! Below are some fun activities that actually require a rainy day!
1. Host a splash contest. Now, you’ll need a fairly big rain for this – but grab your raincoats, rain boots and an umbrella and head outdoors. You’ll need to pick some judges for the contest who will judge the splash. Then let each competitor perform their best splash! You can even create categories of splashes; big, dainty, messy, etc. Have some cool prizes picked out for the winners (water guns, pool toys, beach balls, fun umbrellas).
2. Create a Wet N’ Wild obstacle course! Use things you have around the house to create a series of fun activities for team members to challenge themselves with. Examples include; hula hooping 5 times, kicking a beach ball through plastic cones, spinning around with an umbrella, or tossing water balloons back and forth between team members! The wetter the activity the better! The goal is to have your whole team cross the finish line soaking wet! Remember, rain is the theme of the day!
3. Try out some crazy hair colors! Now, you’ll definitely want a rainy day for this, but this one is often fun for the kiddos. Stop by your local Party City or costume store and get some color hair spray (the kind that washes out in 1 wash) in crazy colors like blue, pink or lime green! Then have your own at home beauty salon. Allow the kiddos to pick out some crazy hair colors or mix and match multiple colors and then take some fun crazy photos before running outside into the rain and allowing the rain to start the process of washing out the color!
With all these fun rainy day activities, you’ll be counting down the days until the storm clouds start gathering! Have fun!
