I have been really trying to make the most of our quiet mornings with Elliot gone to kindergarten and give Gus some one-on-one time AND some preschool activities.
So we are now charting the weather AND learning the days of the week.
Making a weather chart is so easy and there are tons of different ways to do it. Check Pinterest if my rendition isn’t your favorite. Otherwise, here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 sheets of white cardstock and scraps of various colors
- Cricut cartridges: Stamping Solutions, Paper Doll Dress Up, Designer’s Calendar, Create a Critter, Accent Essentials OR printable template from While She Naps
- 2 large circle brads
- Contact Paper
Each morning we check the weather and talk about it – it’s a very simple activity but Gus looks forward to something that’s just for him each day. And more than the actual activity, it’s so good for him and I to spend this time together and to get in the habit of observing and talking about what we see.
It’s a start…
