Make this fall wind sock craft with your kiddos and make grandma really happy too! To be fair, it’s not JUST grandmas who have wind socks, but lots of grandmas do. ☺️
I love walking around the neighborhood with my kids. We are big into taking regular nature walks, but live in a neighborhood with houses close together and lots of landscaping.. we usually have to walk pretty far to get to the actual nature, ha!
Fall Wind Sock Craft In The Neighborhood
But one fun thing about our neighborhood is that we have a lot of people who put out little themed flags or wind socks in their yard for every holiday or season. This time of year, we start noticing orange and yellow decorations with scarecrows and pumpkins!
Even though we really enjoy decorating for Christmas (read- we go ALL out with the lights), we don’t usually do more than carve pumpkins during the fall! This fall wind sock craft is remedying our home’s lack of seasonal decor. 😉
Make Your Own Fall Wind Sock Craft
I like this wind sock craft because it’s easy to customize for any season! The one we made here is for fall… obviously! But use different colors of supplies, and you can make it work for Independence Day, Christmas, etc!
Gather these supplies:
- Toilet Paper Roll
- Construction Paper
- Glue Stick
First, glue the ribbon to the outside of the toilet paper roll. This help the ribbon stay on better, because the construction paper covers it!
Also attach a piece of ribbon to each side of one end for the hanging piece.
Next cut the construction paper to fit around the toilet paper roll. Glue this in place, over the ribbon. Then you can really get creative! Cut the construction paper to make any design that you want. We chose two stripes and some polka dots. Glue them on, let it dry, and ta-da, it’s finished!
Crafts like this fall wind sock are so fun and make celebrating the changing seasons that much more exciting!
Just a reminder-they aren’t weatherproof, so if it’s outside in the rain, it won’t hold up well. We hung ours outside under a covered patio to protect it from the elements but still catch the wind. Inside a window, near the front door, or even in your child’s room would still be fun!
