“I’m going on a picnic and I’m going to bring...” If you know this sentence, then you know how to play the umbrella game. The key is to make sure someone in the car doesn’t. Each person must say the sentence and add something that they would bring on the picnic. You can only bring something if you say the word “um” between “bring” and whatever your item is. For example, “I’m going on a picnic and I’m going to bring...um....a hat” works, while “I’m going on a picnic and I’m going to bring a hat” doesn’t.
