Toilet Paper Tube Wind Sock

Here's my take on a decorative wind sock craft. Please note that it is not meant to be hung outside.
{Wind Sock by Mia, age 4}
Materials:
  • toilet paper tube
  • paint
  • paintbrush
  • scissors
  • glue
  • hole punch
  • tissue paper (or construction paper)
  • yarn (or ribbon or string)
Directions:
  1. Paint a toilet paper tube and allow paint to dry.
  2. Cut tissue paper (or construction paper) into strips about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter (and slightly longer than the tube itself.)
  3. Once the paint is dry, glue the tissue paper strips to the bottom of the toilet paper tube.
  4. Use a hole punch to make two holes on either side of the tube.
  5. Thread some yarn, ribbon, or string through the holes. Tie the ends and your wind sock is ready to be hung up.
