Draw a different weather condition in each section, using pens, crayons or paint. We chose 'sunny', 'windy', 'cloudy' and 'thunder storms'. We also wrote the type of weather next to the drawing.

Make a hole in one end of the popsicle stick using a regular hole punch. Cut the other end off the popsicle stick to create a dial the length you want it to be.

Poke a hole carefully in the middle of the paper plate using a skewer. (An adult should do this step).
Fix the popsicle stick dial onto the paper plate using the butterfly fastener through the hole.

Tape a curl of ribbon onto the back of the paper plate to make a hanger.

You got me thinking about to create a plate representing The four seasons in a similar concept As the children get to be about 5/6/7 talk about and show that We in Australia acknowledge one season other counties embrace the opposite Maybe a sun sky for Summer . A rubbing of leaves cut out to represent Autumn A snowflake and dark clouds for Winter .The spring can blooming flowers coloured and cut out stuck down on the 'Seasonal Plate' Lee /CreativeLee
Really cute idea.
