DIY Toys: Weather Matching Game

This is a simple game that can be made out of construction paper, paper and some basic drawing skills, or felt.

I cut out the shapes for a storm cloud with lightening, a snowman, and the sun out of polyester felt scraps to represent rain, snow and a sunny day.

Then I cut out some apparel that one might wear during the corresponding weather, so there is an umbrella for rain, a knit hat for the snow and sunglasses, which unfortunately look like a bra, for the sunny day.

You can put the felt that represents weather in a row next to the apparel felt and let your toddler match them appropriately.  When that gets to easy you can put it all in a pile and let your child sort it.

Check back every Monday and Thursday for new posts.  Coming up in the next few weeks: more DIY toys, green toy recommendations, and more info on green products.
