home-made wind sock

It was such a windy day yesterday we decided to make a patriotic wind sock for flag day. First we gathered some supplies- a cylindrical container, glue, scissors, construction paper and string. Also we needed a hole punch (or something to poke holes) and streamers.
We took off the hot chocolate wrapper and re-covered our hot chocolate container with blue construction paper.

I cut out some red and white stars for Josie to glue on as a decoration.

Then we found some crepe paper streamers that will blow nicely in the wind. Josie thought it was genius that she figured out to reach inside both sides of the container to help in the taping.

Lastly Mom poked some holes, tied some string and voila, we made a wind sock.

The test! It works!!
