Weather: Noticing Feelings - a project from Place2Be's Art Room

Weather: Noticing Feelings - a project from Place2Be's Art Room

This project from Place2Be's Art Room team supports children to understand and express their feelings through the theme of weather.

We all experience the weather, but it means something different to each of us. The two activities in this project encourage children to use weather to represent their emotional states, and notice how they change.

Activity one invites children to match their feelings with different types of weather, and can be used as a tool to identify and share feelings with others. The second activity explores how the weather is experienced differently by each of us, and can help children express their emotions.

Xavier Leopold, the artist behind Xavi Art, has recorded two videos as inspiration for this project. Watch below as he makes his own ‘Window to My Weather’ activity as inspiration for making your own art, and listen to him read our Weather in Me poem.


At Place2Be, we believe that art is a creative tool to develop resilience and connect with others. Our Art Room team are specialists in using art to support and enhance children and young people’s wellbeing.
