Make your own Plate of Meatballs
Supplies Needed; Paper plate, scraps of paper, pompoms, glue, and scissors
Give children scraps of paper, scissors and pompoms and ask them to use their creativity to create their own plate of meatballs.
Supplies Needed; Baking cups, pipe cleaners, glue, blue construction paper, blue paint, and scissors
Cut pipe cleaners in half. Stick pipe cleaner through the center of the baking cup. Fold the baking cup at the center to create a half circle, and glue it to your paper. Repeat as many times as desired. Finally paint rain drops on you paper and allow to dry.
Create Your Own Cloud Craft
Give the children cotton balls and assist them in creating and labeling their clouds. We used blue construction paper to accentuate our clouds.
Supplies needed; Brad or fastener, black construction paper, colored pens or crayons, paper plate and stickers (if desired)
Separate the plate into four parts. Decorate each part with a different form of weather. Using the black construction paper, cut out an arrow. Use the brad or fastener to attach the arrow to your meter.
As the weather changes, ask the children to change the arrow on their meter.
