DLTK's Crafts for Kids
March Weather

For young children, you may just want to make the coloring page or the craft, but for older children (age 4+), I've included some additional fun activities related to weather, graphing and observations.

The old saying goes...  If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.

Talk to your children about what this might mean?  What aspects of weather determine its ferocity or gentleness?

Draw a two column table on the chalkboard (or a piece of paper).  Call one side LION and one side LAMB.  List elements of weather like temperature, wind, rain, snow, etc that fit on each side.

choose a particular time of day (right before lunch or supper are good times as it will help engage/include the children in dinnertime conversation).  Each day at the given time have the child hang the appropriate lamb/lion face in a special location.

You can also do a bit of math/graphing practice by providing the child with the lion/lamb template below.  Each day, have them color one of the squares on either the lion or the lamb side (depending on what the weather is like).

Make a note at the top of the graph about whether March 1st is a lamb or a lion day.  Then see if March 31st is the opposite.

If you want to throw in a bit of science, you can tell them that we're charting our observations to help prove or disprove the the "in like a lion, out like a lamb" saying.
