halloween windsock

This project is intended for kids ages 3+. Have fun this Halloween and make spooky or cute character windsocks. Hang them outside and watch them blow in the wind!
Step 1

Take a piece of construction paper and find the middle. Make a light mark using a pencil. Use this mark as a guide when creating your face/character.
TIP: It is easier to build and draw before you roll it in a tube and when the paper is flat.

Step 2

Use markers, wiggle eyes and construction paper to create your character; then use a glue stick to attach paper and liquid glue to attach wiggle eyes. Let dry.

Step 3

When the glue is dry and the decorating is finished, roll the paper into a tube and secure it at the back with tape.

Step 4

Cut 5-6 36" [90 cm] lengths of curling ribbon.

Step 5

ADULT: Curl the ribbon by running it along the edge of a scissors.

Step 6

Tape the curled ribbon around the bottom of the character, on the inside of the tube.
