Preschool Weather Chart

This was a group project with my preschool children, and it turned out to be very functional and is very simple and easy to make. Each morning they have to look through the window to check the weather then rotate the arrows on the weather chart to match the day’s weather, last part is everyone’s favorite!

Supplies needed

Cardboard cut in circle shape (You can also use empty pizza box)
Construction paper
Metal brad
cotton balls

Project Instructions

My empty pizza box came in handy for this project, cut the pizza box in circle shape. 
Cut blue construction paper in half circle since this circle is bigger than the size of construction paper so you have to cut two construction papers in semi-circle.
Glue these two semicircles on circle cardboard. Cut out the shapes of Rain drops, sun, snowflakes and cloud; and glue them on this chart. Glue cotton balls on the cloud shape to give it a more natural look. Cut two small arrow shapes for the needle. Poke a small hole in the center of the weather chart and attach the arrows to it by inserting metal brad through the arrows and weather chart.
