Share a Story: Umbrella Storytime


Did you miss our Umbrella Storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions to have a rainy storytime at home!

From Storytime

The big umbrella by illustrator Amy June Bates

Make your arms go as wide as the big umbrella, and then put on a smile as big as the umbrella!

We sang "Leaky Umbrella," and got dripped on all over.


We sang "The Itsy, Bitsy Spider" slow, medium and super fast.


Tap tap boom boom by Elizabeth Bluemle


THE UMBRELLA SONG (from Let's Play Kids Music)

     Down come the rain drops SPLASH, SPLASH, SPLASH! (stamp feet on the splashes)

     Let’s run for cover, DASH, DASH, DASH!  (run on the spot and cover your head)

     Pitter patter, pitter patter, DRIP, DRIP, DROP! (pitter-pat hands on thighs)

     I’m under my umbrella till the raindrops STOP! (put up pretend umbrella)



We sang "Come Under My Umbrella" with the parachute. Check out this jbrary version.
