Windsocks are used to determine the wind direction and wind speed. Your preschooler can create a simple windsock using a colorful piece of tissue paper, a chenille stem, and yarn. This project is also a wonderful opportunity to have your child reinforce fine-motor skills by cutting and folding the tissue paper as well as practice following directions to produce a completed project.
