Fourth of July Craft: Red, White and Blue Windsock
Happy Fourth of July to all of our stateside wish families! Before you fire up the barbecue and settle in for the fireworks, here is a fun and easy craft that will add to your patriotic decor!
Red, white and blue ribbon
A red or blue plastic cup
Star stickers or a permanent marker
Let’s get started!
Step 1: Carefully poke a small hole in the bottom of your plastic cup. Cut a piece of string about two-feet long and tie the two ends together to make a big knot.
Step 2: Pull the loop of the string through the hole at the bottom of the cup. The knot should keep the string from coming all the way through.
Step 3: Use your imagination to decorate your cup. Cover the cup with star stickers or use a permanent market to add your own design.
Step 4: Once you are happy with your cup’s decoration, cut your ribbon into three-foot pieces. Tape them, while alternating colors, to the inside of the cup.
Step 5: Great job! Now, find the perfect place to hang your new patriotic wind sock so that everyone can enjoy your work!
