Fun At The Umbrella Village

Two summers ago, we took our homeschoolers to an umbrella making center in Borsarng Chiang Mai, Thailand. Borsarng is known as the umbrella capital of Thailand.

It was a very good learning experience for all of us. We watched a step by step demonstration on how to make a decorative paper umbrella. The most interesting part was the painting part. It's amazing to watch skillful hands confidently handling paint brushes, briskly stroking colors against papers.

We bought one little blue umbrella for souvenir ( see the picture above).

Here's the fun part! Zoe's waiting for her turn while big sister was all-smile for her photo shoot.

Finally, it's Zoe's turn! Oppss!

 Have a colorful weekend, everyone!

  9. I love your umbrellas! I'm a little partial to umbrellas myself..being from Seattle and rains a lot here. I'm always losing my umbrella. However, these pretty paper umbrellas are just lovely. I saw you visited my color carnival post and decided to see your site...what a fun blog. I admire you for the home schooling too! Sending smiles to you all the way from Seattle, Washington, USA.
