You can make a patriotic wind sock from an oatmeal box, construction paper, string, and crepe paper streamers.
- A cylindrical cardboard oatmeal box
- Construction paper (blue and white)
- Red and white crepe paper streamers
- Hole punch
Cut the bottom off a cylindrical cardboard oatmeal box. Cover the box with blue construction paper and then glue on white construction paper stars.
Cut some red and white crepe paper streamers and glue or staple them to one end of the wind sock.
Punch four holes along the top of the wind sock.
Cut two pieces of string about a foot long. Tie the strings to the wind sock (tie the opposite ends of a string to holes on opposite sides of the cylinder). Tie a longer piece of string to the smaller pieces - you’ll hang the wind sock from this piece of string.
Hang your patriotic wind sock from your window or porch.
