Wet & Wonderful Windsock

Wet & Wonderful Windsock craft

Keep cool while you experiment with watercolors! Hang your wet and wonderful windsock indoors to blow in a breeze.

  • 1.

    Experiment with watercolors! Cover your craft area with newspaper—or use a picnic table outdoors. Wet watercolor paper with a sponge. Add several drips of water to each pan in your Crayola® Washable Watercolors. Paint a line of color across the wet page with your Watercolor Brush. Rinse brush, then paint a different color beside the first. Make zigzag and wiggly lines. Watch the colors blend and bleed.

  • 2.

    When the paper is covered with color, dab it with damp paper towels. Lay paper towels to dry on newspaper. Air-dry everything.

  • 3.

    Assemble the windsock. Roll paper into a tube. Glue the short ends together with Crayola School Glue. Use Crayola Scissors to cut the painted paper towels into several strips. Glue ends of most strips to bottom of tube as fringe.

  • 4.

    Roll remaining paper towel strips into a rope. Glue to the top of the windsock for a hanger. When everything is dry, hang windsock indoors by a window or under a covered porch.
