Weather Activity Plan Schedule
With our activities below you can structure your week however you want. But, what we have found from running these weeks for a few years is that spreading the activities over a full week starting with the sensory play activity lets you spend quality time on each activity and allows indpendent play in the sensory bin whenever you child would like to.
You can see our suggested schedule of activities for weather week below.
