What you need:
- stapler/waterproof tape
- hole punch
- weatherproof paper (an overnight shipping envelope or disposable painter's coveralls)
What to do:
Cut a square from the weatherproof paper.
Invite your child to decorate the square with crayon illustrations.
Cut a number of equally sized slits halfway up the square from the bottom to make tails.
Using a stapler or strong, waterproof tape, attach the right and left sides of the square together from the top down to where the slits begin, to form a cylinder.
- Use a hole-punch to make four holes along the top edge of the cylinder and thread a piece of string or yarn through each of the holes. Tie the strings together a few inches from the opening, hang outside, and watch the wind do its thing.
