We’re finally experiencing spring-like weather where we live and have been enjoying hours outside every day for the past few weeks. It’s been such a welcome relief from the cold winter temperatures!
This spring I’m looking forward to (hopefully) starting a garden and planting some more trees around our yard. *fingers crossed*
Now if you’ve been following us since January then you’ll know that we’ve been observing and recording our local weather conditions daily on our Weather Observation Tree.
We color in a new leaf every afternoon, typically around snack time. It’s been a fun little activity for us to do together as a family.
But since we’re now heading into the fourth month of the year, I thought I’d make available a Weather Observation Wreath for those of ya’ll who missed starting the Weather Observation Tree at the beginning of the year or maybe didn’t want to commit to a full year of recording the weather.
The Weather Observation Wreath is a really simple activity. Here’s how it works:
- Print the Weather Observation Wreath on heavyweight cardstock.
- Determine which weather conditions you would like to track and record.
- Determine a color coding system.
- Fill in the legend.
- Beginning April 1st, observe the weather and decide the predominant weather condition and then color in the associated leaf with the corresponding color.
- Simply repeat for every day of the month.
Tracking and recording the weather is an easy and straightforward way to begin discussing weather patterns and conditions with your children and helps to hone their observation skills.
April’s Weather Observation Wreath is available free to download in the Resource Library.

I plan to make a new weather observation wreath for each month of the year, so be sure to check back towards the end of April for next month’s wreath!
