We made wind vanes today. They are super easy and you should have all the supplies in your home!
(for 2 wind vanes)
4 paper plates
glitter, feathers, sequence, beads etc
2 long pins
2 pencils with the eraser still intact
STEP 1: Take a paper plate and mark N, S, E and W on the correct sides.
STEP 2: Let the children decorate!
Make arrows tips and ends. Mine were between 2-2.5 inches in length. Let the kids cut them out and decorate!
STEP 4: Poke a long pin through the straw at the middle point.
STEP 5: Push the pin onto the top of the pencil eraser. Stick the pencil through the middle of the paper plate. On the end of the pencil, put a big ball of play dough on the bottom in order to stabilize the pencil and prevent it from falling over.
STEP 6: glue the two paper plates together.
STEP 7: Go outside and try it out!
Great video we found helpful! Enjoy!
