|CREATE|simple weather chart

For some time I've been looking at making a simple weather chart for T and this afternoon, with half an hour spare we got to work.

Here's what we did incase you'd like to make one for yourself!

You will need:
A paper plate
Craft foam
A split pin
A pipe cleaner
A small bead
A sharpie
Weather images, if you are using them

I used this free weather word mat from Twinkl and cut out the weather icons we wanted to use although you could drawn your own pictures.

1. Cut out your images and stick to the paper plate or drawn your images directly onto the plate. 

2. Cut out a simple arrow shape from craft foam and punch a hole, attach to the centre of the plate using the split pin. 
3. Cut out a rectangle of craft foam, punch a hole at either end. 

4. Draw a red line upwards and write the word 'HOT' draw a blue line down and write the word 'COLD'.

5. Thread the bead onto the pipe cleaner and thread through the holes on the foam temperature indicator. 

And that's it, you now have a nice simple weather chart for your little one to change each day.

  1. This is great, I used to absolutely love those spinny pins when I was at school and A's starting to notice the weather more so I'll have to make this one with him. Thanks for linking to #MarvMondays! Kaye xo

  2. Simple but lovely idea - those split pins are brilliant for lots of different things aren't they!

  3. Aaaah, split pins! Yes, a real throw back! This is a great idea, and as I've always wanted to be one of those craft type mums, and my children are actually really starting to take a proper interest in crafting now, I will give this a go!!
    Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink!

  4. This is great, Leandra! I love how simple it is for kids to make themselves and then change each day. The hot and cold gauge is an excellent idea too. O would love this, but A would probably rip it down if he could! Might have to put it out his reach. Thanks for linking up to #HowtoSunday :) x

  5. I love the hot and cold gauge - brilliant idea!

  6. Such a simple but fun and educational activity. A great idea :) #LetsLearn

  7. Such a great and simple idea! Love twinkl for labels and stuff like this :-)

  8. This is a great idea, my eldest boy loves checking the weather each day so I'm sure he'd like a weather chart like this #letslearn

  9. Such a simple idea but so effective...and with our weather changing every 5 minutes this would simply keep little ones busy ;-)
