Se7en’s Weather Tree… A Free Printable.

January 2nd, 2012 · 25 Comments

It is that time of year… Our weather tree is full and it is time for a new one.


Those of you that follow our blog know that we post a weekly round up of the things we have been up to and at the beginning of each of these posts we have a photograph of our weather tree…


So here you go… A weather tree for you to print out and color as you wish. We color ours, everything except the leaves and then we keep two markers nearby it all year: one green for glorious sunny days and one blue for the inevitable rainy days… And mark them up as we go.


This year we decided to make a weather tree for all our readers… (even if it says it is not available – it is!!! Just click on it). All you need to do is click on the image and it will open in a new tab in your browser, from there you can print your own copy and pop it on the fridge and color away… Hope you enjoy it!!!

    This is wonderful! Yesterday I started searching your archives looking for a printable version because I would love to do one with my children. And now here it is served on a silver plate 🙂
    Thank you so much for sharing and all the best for the 2012 to all the Hoods big and small!

    Oh happy day!!! We have been wanting to do this for some time now.

    Thank you for saving us time through your generous work!

    We can’t wait to get started. 🙂

    P.S. We just printed it out! Looks like we need to add a “snowy” leaf for our key. Well, hopefully we will be getting more snow soon. 😉 Thank you again!

    Hi April, I think there are folks around the world who could make lots of little tweaks to their trees!!! After years of adding and subtracting we settled on just the two because that about sums up our weather – rain or shine… or shine or rain!!! Hope you have fun with your calendar!!!

    What a fabulous tree! This year is the first I actually got a tree ready the day before – miracles do happen! We are doing grey for cloudy, and white for snow with the green and blue. Holding thumbs for some white leaves soon – we have the best slope in our new yard for sliding down. Blessings!

    Thank you! We tried to do this a few years ago but we’re just not as crafty as you are and our tree was quite sad. Add to that the fact that we’re pretty awful at keeping up with something like this (we tried an advent calendar this year and had to do something like 10 days on the 24th!) and it was a disaster. But with a printable, I think we will try again. Thank you so much!

    Hi Corli!!! How are you… So way ahead of me!!! We still have to make a big card tree to go on the door, I am looking for a large piece of paper!!! But so far it is all sunshine – so not hard to keep track of!!! Oh wouldn’t some snow be fun!!! Hope you have a great day!!! Lots of lekker love from all of us!!!

  • 11 se7en // Jan 3, 2012 at 9:01 am

    Hi Christa – I am so with you!!! We are hopeless at keeping up with stuff… HOPELESS!!! Our advent has had to get simpler and simpler and simpler!!! This year we just had to turn a card… when someone remembered!!! And the only thing that keeps our weather tree going is the fact that we post it in our “week that was” posts!!! I fear I would be the worst pre-school teacher, my noticeboard would say Monday and sunny all week, despite the weather!!! Anyway all the best with the printout!!! Have a great day!!!

  • 12 Jo // Jan 3, 2012 at 4:00 pm

    This is perfect for my keeping track-of-things almost 6yr old son! LOVE the cluster images of the tree ‘growing’ it’s weather leaves )

    Hay Jo, So excited to have a comment from you today… I love browsing your website!!! And we are huge fans of Lilla A and so we will definitely be making a whole lot of ships for the latest exhibition!!! So glad you like our weather tree!!! I hope you have a lot of fun keeping track!!! Have a fabulous day!!!

  • 14 april c // Jan 3, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Love this! I was going to make one…..and then you posted a printable! Fabulous! We have many days that are half sunny and half cloudy or rainy, so I think we may mark our leaves twice a day and do some half and half to account for the dramatic shifts that can happen. Love the idea of doing gray for cloudy days (we get a lot of those in the Pacific Northwest of the USA). Thank you, thank you!!!

  • 15 Cheryl // Jan 4, 2012 at 6:54 am

    What a great idea! Thanks for sharing! I think I will put a white leaf for snowy days..not that it snows that often here in east Texas..but once in a while! I also think I will blow it up bigger and let the kids look up the high/low temps for the day and write it on the leaf.

    Hi April C, So glad you liked it and so glad you can fit it to your extreme weather on the far side of the world!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!!

  • 17 se7en // Jan 4, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Hi cheryl, My kids would love a white leaf for snow too – especially if it meant a bit go snow – but alas we never get snow… we live in a rain or shine part of the world!!! We have added temperature and wind before it just depends really on which kids are filling it in!!! Love an adaptable project!!! Hope you have a great week!!!

  • 18 Dawn S // Jan 5, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    I have thought several times what a great idea your tree is. Thanks for sharing. The kids and I delight in the pictures of your kids swimming when we are having winter. Alas we’ve had no snow for sledding during Christmas break, but we hope to have many white leaves soon!

  • 19 se7en // Jan 5, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    Thanks Dawn, So glad you like the weather tree… hoping you get that longed for snow really soon!!! Hope you have a great day!!!

  • 20 Carrie // Jan 6, 2012 at 2:29 am

    How fun!! Thank you for sharing it at Sharing Saturday. I just printed it and know my daughter will love it. We will be adding a snow color as well. Happy New Year!!

    Thanks so much for this! I’m making a copy per child to put in their binder. I’m thinking to start a weather/calendar tab, and this will go along perfectly!
