Patriotic Windsock Craft

When you think of Summertime what comes to mind? Vacations, beaches, pool time, cookouts, playgrounds and camping? Well let's not forget all of the patriotic holidays that occur in the Summer like Flag Day, Memorial Day and The 4th of July! So today am sharing an adorable patriotic craft how to with you. This patriotic windsock will make a great 4th of July decoration. I got this idea from Mrs. Schott during our Founders Academy Flag Day course.

-Red, White (x2) and Blue Construction Paper
-Kid-Friendly Scissors
-Assorted Glitter - like Rose Art Glitter Glue Pens, Magic Glitter Pens, Glitter Shakers
-Fishing Line


1. Take a piece of red construction paper and fold it into 1/8's length-wise. This will make lines for the kids to cut along. You could also use a ruler to make the lines but I found this quicker and easier. Next have your kids cut out the 8 strips.

2. Glue the red strips onto the white construction paper width-wise. Then fold the blue construction paper in half width-wise and glue it to the top of the white paper.

3. Next cut out several stars from another piece of white construction paper and glue them to the blue portion. Now let your kids loose with the glitter and glitter pens.

4. Cute several streamers to your desired length and have your kids tape them to the backside of the white portion. Now make a tube with your completed project and glue or tape the ends together.

5. Now add some fishing line to the top of the windsock to hang it up. Gwyn hung hers up outside of our front door. Doesn't it look great with our ribbon?

*Disclaimer - Rose Art supplies from Mega Brand supplies us with lots of wonderful products in return for honest review and craft project how to's. I was not compensated for my review and all opinions are our own! Many of the links found on my side bars and in my blog posts are affiliate links. As a result, I might get paid money and I will most likely spend the money on homeschool supplies.
