second saturday art: wind socks

Posted on July 11, 2011 by ashley | 0 Comments

For July's Second Saturday Art class, the kids made wind socks! It was the perfect day for these, because it was pretty breezy out! Missed Second Saturday Art? Here's how to easily make one at home...

1. A long rectangular piece of white construction paper.
2. Tissue paper, cut into strips.
3. Glue
4. Pens, crayons
5. Yarn
6. Hole Puncher
7. Stapler

First draw an ocean scene on the construction paper. We also cut out some fish shapes out of old magazines to glue into their fish scene.

Flip the drawing over and glue the strips of tissue paper to the bottom of the paper. Make sure you're gluing on the back (blank) side of the paper. Note: Glue strips so the colored/printed side is face down.
Next staple the ends together, punch 2 holes in the top and tie a 12-inch piece of yarn through the holes.

And you have a wind sock! Hang it out on the porch and watch it blow in the Maui breeze...
