Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The raindrop clothespin game has a full game with game board, and it also has some simple clothespin matching activities. In both parts, you use clothespins to clip raindrops onto an umbrella. Here is the reversals umbrella free.


For the matching part, there is a colorful rainbow umbrella that you match the colored raindrops to. There are two umbrellas with alphabet letters, and one with numbers. There is also an umbrella that has frequently reversed letters on it, and you can download that one for free.


The game itself is more complex. There is a rainbow colored game board with instructions in the spaces, such as draw a card and get a raindrop. There is a blank umbrella with simple raindrops to collect and clip onto your umbrella. When you land on a space and have to draw a card, there are questions on the cards to answer. If you are working on communication and socialization, then the kids can just answer the questions, but if you want to squeeze in some writing, then they have to write down their answer.


Also included are letter cards for the kids you want to just practice writing letters. You could have kids review any educational subject matter by using your own cards that they have to answer, such as math facts etc.


The game can either go from the start square to start, or you can just keep going around until the time is up. The winner is the player with the most raindrops at the end of the game.

  1. I love this, Tonya! Just got around to viewing this newsletter!!!! I will pin and use:) thanks!

  2. Very cute idea, but be careful with clothespins. In your own photo, you’re hyper extending at the IP joint of the thumb. Our little kiddos do not have the fine motor precision to safely operate clothespins and switch to power and hyperextend at the thumb, which is counterproductive to developing a mature tripod grasp. Maybe paper clips for the little kiddos, and clothespins for older kiddos who have a more developed thenar eminence.
