Paint Your Own Umbrella

When you pull this plain white parasol out of the package for the first time, it looks a little like it may have been part of a Mary Poppins accessory pack. Ms. Poppins would agree, it’s up to your child to splash some imagination onto it! The enFtire kit contains one white nylon umbrella, a set of waterproof paints and a brush so your child can decorate however she sees fit. Just add water and you’ve got a functional, fashionable toy that brightens up rainy days. (Sassafras, $13.99)
