Catch Spring's cool breezes with a homemade wind sock.

What you'll need

  • Markers
  • Paint and brushes
  • Crayons
  • Glitter
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Crepe paper streamers
  • String

How to make it

  1. Use markers, paints, or crayons to decorate a 6- by 18-inch strip of construction paper. Try making stars, flowers, or birthday candles, adding glitter, or giving the wind sock a face by gluing on paper cutouts of eyes, ears, a nose and a mouth.

  2. Next, cut nine 26-inch-long crepe paper streamers and glue them to the back of the bottom edge of the paper.

  3. Finally, knot a 30-inch piece of string at each end and staple the knots to the tube sides to make a handle.

  4. Hang the wind sock on a porch or patio where it will be protected from strong winds and watch it ride the gentle breeze.
