This windsock craft was really fun to make and it also doubled as a fun dancing accessory!

To make these pretty windsocks we used:
- Coloured card
- Paint/marker pens/dot markers
- Tape or glue
- Gift wrapping ribbon (I got ours from the dollar store)
- Hole punch
- Pipe cleaner or ribbon
The first task was to decorate the card. Miss L chose to paint her pink card in sparkly pink paint. Miss E chose to use a combination of marker pens and dot markers. If you’re trying to complete this craft in one session then I’d recommend not using paint as we had to wait for Miss L’s card to dry before we could continue.
When the paint had dried, we turned the card over and attached long streamers of ribbon to one of the long sides of the card. We used tape for this because it was quicker and less messy than using glue!
Then we curled the card round to make a cylinder and taped it securely.
At the top of the cylinder we punched two holes on opposite sides, and threaded a pipe cleaner through to make a handle. The girls took them outside and turned them into dancing accessories – the ribbons were fantastic as streamers!
After he’d finished with it I hung mine up on a bird feeder hook to catch some wind!
Note: remember that these windsocks are not rain-proof, so don’t leave them outside unless they are under cover!
