This activity is MAJOR nostalgia for me!
I can remember my Kindergarten classroom having brightly colored windsocks hanging from the ceilings for just about every holiday (I went to school when art projects were standard procedure).
As we embark into spring, I am excited to create these adorable windsocks that blow in the warm breeze.
This activity will work on creative skills, fine motor skills, and gluing skills.
