Free Printable Weather Game

Weather game for ages 3 to 6.

I love teaching kids about the weather. There’s something magical about the way the systems of the earth work together so smoothly to create our weather patterns.

This free printable weather game is a great way to review weather words in a fun and playful way.

It’s the perfect compliment to our action-packed Weather Activity Pack!

Getting Ready

Download the Weather Game below. Then, you can print it all on cardstock or you can print it on regular paper and laminate it for durability.

Print 2 to 3 copies of the playing card page. After cutting them out, you can store the cards in a zip-top baggie. If you choose not to print the extra copies of the playing cards, you can just reshuffle when you get to the bottom of the pile.

You will also need a playing piece for each player. This game works best with 2-4 players.

You can turn this into a file-folder game by using the included directions card and file folder label or you can use it independently.

Free printable from Playdough to Plato!

Playing the Weather Game

Place your marker on the “Start” snowflake. Place cards upside down on the “Card Draw Pile”.

Choose a player to go first.

The player will draw the top card from the pile and move the first space with the matching picture. Play continues to the next player in clockwise order.

If a “lightning” card is drawn, the player will head to the closest lightning space, even if it is behind him. He will follow the arrows to the new space.

To win by landing on the last sun, a player MUST draw a sun card from the pile.

      Hello Melissa,
      I completely understand. Playdough to Plato is based out of the Washington State, so we are in our rainy season as well!

    Hi Malia,
    I just wanted to let you know that, despite this page being part of the “Free Resources” section of your site, the “Download” button only takes me to your shop. It doesn’t allow me to download the freebie. There have been a couple of “freebies” that didn’t end up being free but sent me to your shop site to purchase the item.
    I just wanted to let you know as I realize, over time, that site settings can get mixed up.

    Thanks for all your supporting games and activities. It really makes my life a lot easier!
