We have two different adjustable umbrella sizes – 40″ in diameter and 60″ in diameter umbrellas. The 40″ umbrella adjusts between 34″ and 52″ when placed in a Step2 product. The 60” umbrella adjusts between 45″ and 69.5″ when placed in a Step2 product. The umbrella colors may vary based on inventory levels. The above mentioned products can work with either size umbrella. However, knowing the shade coverage and proportions may help determine which umbrella will best fit on your Step2 product.
In the past, we have enjoyed providing our customers with fun DIY activities such as crafts and recipes for holidays. However, for this Memorial Day weekend, we decided to provide you with a festive way to celebrate using your child’s Step2 toys! Decorating your child’s playhouse or climber can be a fun way for you and your child to use your creativity while celebrating this patriotic time of year.
What you will need:
Red, white, and blue construction paper (or poster board- that is what we used! We felt it was sturdier)
How to create the red, white and blue chain(s) [Adult supervision required for this step]: Cut the construction paper or poster board into strips, then take the strip and attach the two ends of the strip together to create a ring. Staple the two ends together. Place the second strip of paper through the newly made loop. Again, join the ends of the strip together by stapling. Alternate between red, white, and blue strips to continue this process of creating a long chain.
Once you have completed the long chain, place the chain(s) on the desired playhouse or climber. If it is windy, you can tape parts of the chain onto the playhouse or climber. Place the American flag(s) in the ground around the climber or playhouse. Tape the garland near the doorway of the playhouse or in and throughout part the climber.
Decorating your Step2 playhouse or climber can make your backyard or home more festive as you celebrate this Memorial Day weekend! What are you doing to celebrate Memorial Day?
