We love making crafts that we can use in our learning and this fab rainbow windsock is a brilliant make that is great for learning about the weather and the wind.
This is such a fun and simple activity for kids of all ages and we love the bright ribbons that we used from our stash. Don’t the colours look beautiful against the blue sky and the way that they blow in the wind is a great indicator of both the strength of the wind and the direction.
How to make a rainbow windsock
If you’d like to know how to make your own rainbow windsock visit the Flora website for my tutorial and for more ideas to Get Crafty with your children. There is a step by step photo tutorial featuring Mini which shows you just how easy it is to make your own rainbow windsock!
I am a huge fan of being creative with kids and this activity is perfect for the occasional rainy spring day and then once the sun is out you can get outside with your windsock and make the most of the weather. Spring is a fab time to get outside with the kids and make the most of the lighter nights and warmer days.
Disclosure: I was commissioned to create this craft for the Flora website and to share it with you here
