DIY Preschool Weather Board {With Free Printables!}

I’m am SO excited to share with you our preschool weather board! I just put it together and I also created some printables for YOU to use, too! Since we’re still on the letter W, I thought studying weather would be appropriate. Also, Troy is talking a lot about the weather lately so I know he’s ready for this!

DIY Weather Board {includes free printables!}

First, I made a weather wheel.  This was the first time I bought clip art for printables and I love it! The only problem is that it didn’t come with a graphic for snow. So please forgive me that this weather wheel doesn’t include snow. To download your FREE copy, click here —> Weather Wheel

It’s easy to assemble…just cut out the wheel and arrow and put a brad through it.

Then I made a weekly weather graph with cards to put under each day. To download your FREE copy, click here —> Weather Graph

My suggestion is print these out on cardstock and laminate them. If you don’t have a laminator, you may want to invest in one–here’s my favorite: Scotch Thermal Laminator

Laminated Weather Sheets You don’t need to mount the wheel and graph on anything, but I chose to make a board for this. I took an old canvas and wrapped it with fabric. Then I attached the weather graph and added an envelope below to hold all the cards. I also put velcro dots on the graph and cards.

We are excited to add our weather board to our preschool day. I know it’s a very common thing to do in preschooler curriculum, so I hope these resources are helpful for you!

I also wanted to share with you 5 of our favorite weather books.

  1. Super cute, Angela! We’re in the process of getting a big bulletin board on our wall – so I will finally be able to do stuff like this with the kids.

    • Thank you so much! That’s fun about the bulletin board!! We are in the process of selling our house, so I can’t hang one right now. When we move I’d love to have a whole corner for this type of stuff. I guess that’s the teacher in me!

  2. thanx for sharing awesome way of doing it and I like the idea of tracking it throughout the week.

  3. I LOVE THIS!!! Since we’re currently remodeling the basement and I have no wall space to hang anything, I may try using these in a 3 ring binder so we can talk about the weather every day.

  4. This is great! Thanks so much for sharing. And it doesn’t snow around our parts, so the lack of snow on the weather wheel won’t make a difference around here. :-)

  8. I wish you had snow! :( other than no snow cards, my kiddos and I love this weather board. I personally liked the graphics the most compared to what else is out there.
    Here is how I incorporated your “the weather outside is…” to my board.

    These are so cute! I used them to make flash card size pictures for my infant. I will probably laminate them to keep them in good lasting condition (baby drool). Thank you for sharing.
