Make your own wind sock.

What You Need:

None

What To Do:


1. Let your child decorate the toilet paper tube with crayons or markers in any way he wishes.
2. Cut tissue paper into strips to make streamers. Glue them to one end of the tube for him.
3. At the end of the tube, poke two small holes across from each other, thread a piece of string through them, and tie the string ends together to make a loop.
4. Hang the wind sock outside.
5. Talk about the wind and how you can feel it but not see it.
6. Talk about what happens when the wind blows.
7. Ask, “Is there another way to make the wind sock move? Let’s try blowing on it. See what happens!”

Safety Alert: Scissors should be used by adults and kept out of reach of young children. Toddlers do not yet have the coordination to use adult scissors. When your child gets older (three to four years old), use blunt child-sized scissors to let him practice cutting.
