Walking through the parking lot, I looked back and could barely see her, the umbrella was so big. It was all umbrella and boots. Instantly, I thought of the the book Raindrop Plop! and was inspired to make our own crayon resist watercolor version of the cover.First a little bit about the book, via product description:
One little raindrop,
dark, dark sky.
Two little raindrops,
clouds go by...
How many ways can you have fun on a rainy day? From one little raindrop to ten toes soaking in a warm bubble bath, there are lots of things to see and count until the sun comes out again. In between, there are silly boots to pull on and puddles to splash in and a rainy backyard just waiting to be explored. A spirited rhyming text that’s ideal for reading aloud and cheerful illustrations capture the unexpected pleasures that a little wet weather can bring to a young child’s day.
Here are the steps to create our project:Use a green crayon to draw the horizon on a piece of paper. Scribble in grass but don't color in bottom portion complete. Scribble with blue crayon on the top for the sky.
Watercolor with the cooresponding colors both potions of the paper.
Draw an umbrella, skirt, and boots. Just simple line drawings. Cut out and paint in with watercolors.
Glue as shown above. Attach poem with the first half of book's text in empty space. For the complete text, click here.
