This is an easy project for your child to make. It’s especially great on a windy day.

You will need:

  • 1 sheet of 8.5 x 11 colored paper
  • Strips of paper for decorating
  • Yarn or string
  • Scissors & glue


  1. Fold the paper in a cylinder shape and glue the ends together.
  2. Decorate one end of the cylinder by gluing strips of crepe paper, colored paper or even newspaper.
  3.  On the other end you’ll be making 2 holes but before you do reinforce the area with tape then punch the holes. Attach a piece of yarn or string. This will be used to hang your windsock.
  4. Now, hang your windsock in a secure place and watch what happens when the wind blows.
