#ACTEMPPROJECT2020

Temperature projects start at the first of the year. Each day we will work two color stripes, so at the end of the year you have a finished project. The colors you work is based on the highest and one for the lowest temperature of the day. Easy peasy, right? Feel free to personalize your blanket. Swap your colors or add colors for higher temps if you live in a warmer area. Maybe add Hot Pink and Burgundy? Go HERE for complete details!

Skipped a day? No worries keep track of the daily temps in your cute journal or note pad so you can catch up later. If you did not write down that days temperature you can visit Accuweather. This allows you to look up past weather info in your area.

Here’s my color swatches…you can adjust this to your climate and make your own palette of colors as well!
