Judah and I enjoyed a quick art project the other day and I thought I would share it with you! We made this wind sock with all materials we had on hand (and reused some items too!). All you need is two pieces of sturdy card stock, some cotton balls, glue, a stapler (or some tape), a piece of string or ribbon, and some tissue paper in multiple colors (we used some that we saved from a gift we received).
First, I had Judah pull some cotton balls apart. Then, he glued them down all over the card stock.
Then, we taped down strips of different colored tissue paper all acrossed the bottoms of the two pieces of card stock.
I stapled the card stock together to make a cylinder. Doesn’t it look like a puffy cloud at the top?
Then, I attached some ribbon (left over from birthday decorating) to the top so that we could hang it from a tree outside near his swingset.
Judah thought it was really neat that he could watch the wind blow it around.
