Creating a Weather Station on It's Playtime

Did you know you can create your own weather station from a single item found in nature?  Last week on It's Playtime, Science Sparks showed us how.  

All you need to create your own Pine Cone Weather Station are....pine cones!  Go to Science Sparks and learn to read your pine cones, then get out in nature and start collecting.  You'll not only enjoy the outdoor activity with your kids but you'll be teaching them the science of prediction.

If you were featured this week, don't forget to grab your special "featured button."    

These activities plus more can be found over on the It's Playtime Pinterest Board.  Happy Pinning! 
Now, on to this weeks play date!
