DIY Weather Station for Kids

60 Minutes
What a funny and creative idea for your kids is to play choosing the everyday weather. You can use for station either a magnetic board or your fridge! To make weather signs you will need simple materials and little time to design and sew it. If the fabric is colored that's great; if not, you can use white fabric and paint it with colorful pens.
what you will need
small pieces of fabric (white or colored, blue and yellow)
needle and thread
5 small magnets
colorful markers
magnet board (optionally)
1 • On a double folded fabric, draw and cut the meteorological signs: one sun, one cloud, one-two drops for the rain, a lightning and a snow flake.
2 • Sew the two sides of every sign together and fill them with cotton. Add a magnet inside, in one of sides. Sew to close the material.
3 • If the fabric is white, color the signs; yellow the sun and the lighting, blue the rain and the snowflake.

  • How cute! If I was younger, I would be a storm chaser, I love mother nature and weather. This is a great way to teach kids stuff too. Back in the day when I was in elementary school, each weeks spelling words had a theme, and I distinctly remember the "cloud" week. There were different pictures of the clouds and we had to learn how to spell them, and it also taught us about the different clouds. Do they still do this? Great share!
