Umbrella Games

Umbrella Games for preschoolers through second grade.


Instead of saying “red light” “green light”, use a real umbrella to get the children to stop and go. Umbrella up means go- umbrella down means stop.


On our rainy day, I bring in 3 or 4 umbrellas from home. I let a few children come up to the front of the class to hold the umbrellas and tell them that I think it might rain IN the classroom! Then I call up 2 more children to hold rainsticks. We all sing “It’s raining, it’s pouring…” while the children play the rainsticks….then the fun begins! I have a little bucket of water with a sponge which I squeeze out on the children with umbrellas while we are all singing. Squeals and giggles erupt!! We continue until everyone has a chance to be rained on. (It is a good idea to put a shower curtain down on the floor first to catch the raindrops!)

A game for the theme of Umbrellas. open up an umbrella and let the children throw in balls or bean bags in a controlled game. What fun.
