Time: 10 min
Books: You can find a bunch of suggestions here http://www.everythingpreschool.com/themes/wind/books.php
Colored Copy Paper (20lb – 28lb)
Various colored crepe paper streamers
Adults get to use Scissors and a Hole Punch
Prep: Cut lengths of streamers 18” – 24” long (5) per wind sock
Activity: Each child gets a sheet of paper, glue stick and 5 streamers. Lay paper out flat and glue streamers hanging off of the 11” side. Once all the streamers are on, put glue along one of the 8-1/2” edges and roll into a tube shape. Punch 2 holes at the top and add a string for hanging – Or running.
Notes/Tips: Copy paper works better than construction paper for this project because it does not rip as easily. You can also reinforce where they will hang by adding a small pieces of masking tape inside the ‘sock’ before punching holes. Older kids can decorate the ‘sock’ before adding the streamers; just remember to leave about 1” of blank space on the 8-1/2” side where the sheet will overlap.
