Painting the weather

I’ve been wanting to have a simple weather graph to mark daily when we sing our “What’s the Weather” song (someday I’ll figure out how to attach a voice record!), so I decided we’d just make one!
Super simple. All you need is blue and yellow finger paints, a paper plate, Sharpee marker, cardstock of any color cut into an arrow, and a brad!
One yellow hand painted circle/oval makes the sun, blue hand streaks for wind, finger dots for rain, then draw/write your labels, and attach your arrow! Wahoo!
And talk about taking ownership! No matter the age of your child, they love looking at their own creations more than something pre-made and store bought!! Such a quick and fun project!
