Make a Wind Sock Craft

A WIND SOCK is a weather instrument that shows the direction of the wind.




Here are easy directions to make a wind sock that kids can make with a few inexpensive supplies.





Materials
  • cardboard or heavy paper
  • glue
  • string
  • crepe paper streamers
  • paper punch 


Directions
  • Roll a rectangular piece of cardboard into a tube shape and glue or staple.
  • On one end of the tube punch 3 holes.
  • Loop a piece of string or yarn through each hole.
  • Tie the 3 pieces of string together.
  • On the other end of the tube glue approx. 5 streamers.
  • Have fun observing the wind!

The kids can make wind socks in different colors and sizes. They could compare the different sizes and see which ones "catch" the wind better!

Here are craft directions to make a mini wind sock that can be used indoors or outdoors.
