totally going to use it for Art Week a the zoo! Creating fall leaf pictures is a classic craft activity that can be enjoyed by all ages. You'll find this lovely example and others at Atelier Pour Enfants.
have the umbrella have a number on it on a board, hand each kid a few raindrops and then call up the number on the umbrella. say "who has 'one' raindrop" they will come up, find and place it on umbrella w matching number.
Celery flower art is another great Mother's Day idea or just a simple art project for the classroom. I think the idea of using food to create art would be an interesting project to bring to the classroom and have students work with and experiment with.
