February 5: Weatherperson's Day

image from

The Toolbox Training book 100 Nature Activities for Kids has an entire section of weather activities which includes activities such as making a weather vane, rain gauge, barometer, and hygrometer. Consider making those various instruments along with starting a weather calendar today and keeping it for the next month.

Weather Calendar


  • 2 large calendars or poster board to make calendars
  • construction paper
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • glue
  • scissors
  • markers


  1. Discuss weather conditions with the children. What’s the weather going to be like today? How can we find out?
  2. The children will cut out symbols from construction paper that describe the weather (such as an umbrella for a rainy day, sun for a sunny day, or cloud for a cloudy day).
  3. The children can also write the days of the week and the dates on the calendar.
  4. The children may want to call the weather line to get a prediction for the day.
  5. The children can attach the symbol for the day and write in the temperature.
