Flannel Friday - Whats the weather? WINDY!

Some time ago I developed a set of flannels to depict different sorts of weather.  They've been great in any storytime to start a conversation about the weather; after all, it's what our adults do all the time!  We also regularly sing a little rhyme*, but my original pieces lacked one common weather symbol which features in the song (and unfortunately in our Scottish climate too) - WINDY!

Finally I added a windy symbol to my set. Also a template in pdf format.

Oh, and here's the rhyme:

What's the Weather (Weather Song)
[to the tune of "Oh My Darling"]

What’s the weather?
What’s the weather?
What’s the weather, everyone?
Is it windy?
Is it cloudy?
Is there rain?
Or is there sun?
