Simple Preschool Craft: Waving in the Wind

The beauty of God’s creation is visible all around us. Use these creative windsocks to teach preschoolers the importance of taking time to admire His creation, like the wind.


You’ll need:

  • construction paper,
  • crepe paper,
  • scissors,
  • yarn, and
  • tape.

Simple Preschool Craft: Waving in the Wind

Before class cut a 2 x 11 1/2-inch strip of construction paper and a 6-inch piece of yarn for each child. Cut several 12-inch crepe paper streamers for each child.

Give each child a strip of construction paper and help him or her tape the two ends together to form a ring. Set out the crepe paper streamers and have children tape streamers around the rings. Older children may wish to tear the ends of the streamers for a fringed effect.

Tape a piece of yarn on opposite sides of each ring to form a handle. Have children take their windsocks outside and watch the colorful streamers wave in the wind. Children can make smaller windsocks by using 1-inch widths cut from cardboard tubes. They can hang several of these from the bottom of a wire hanger.

Have children hold their windsocks up in the wind or wave them around if it’s a still day. As they do, lead them in the following rhyming game.

Say: Colors waving, blowing free. What bright colors do you see?

Call on a child to tell a color that he or she sees. Repeat the rhyme so each child has a turn to play.
