This is our weather wheel which we made as a preschool holiday project. In each school holiday, teacher asks us to complete a craft project according a topic given. As the kid is in kindergarten now, the crafts are not simply art crafts. Instead of simple art crafts, teacher asks us to prepare crafts that are suitable for the learning centre. Therefore the craft needs be an activity which kids can engage.
Check this save environment craft which we made in last term.
For this term, there are 4 topics given and we chose ‘weather’ as the theme for our craft activity. This weather wheel is not a pure idea of me. I browsed and found this idea in many other websites and blogs. And finally here is our weather wheel which was a good bonding activity for both my kid and me.
While I did part of the work such as cutting, kid did colouring, writing and pasting.
Here is how we made the weather wheel activity for the preschool learning centre.
Note: we used the materials provided by the preschool for the class project. However you can choose relevant materials that makes this crafty activity easy and simple. A disposable plate is perfect for this weather wheel than cutting a cardboard.
