How to make a windsock.

Windsocks are a popular decoration to hang up on your porch. You can also hold them by the handle, and run around with them to make the streamers ripple in the wind. They come in all sorts of shapes and colours, making them a perfect craft project for children of all ages.

Cut a 2.5cm ring from a plastic bottle.


Find a plastic water bottle or soda bottle. Cut the bottle in half using a pair of scissors or craft blade. Next, cut a 2.5cm wide ring from one of the bottle halves. Keep the ring and recycle the rest. Young children will need help with this step. If the bottle was dirty inside, wash the ring using soap and warm water. Dry it off with a towel.

Punch two holes into the plastic ring.

Use a hole puncher or an awl to make the holes. Make sure that the holes are across from each other, or the windsock won’t hang evenly.

Thread a piece of string through the holes to make a handle.

Cut a piece of string that is three to four times the length of your ring. Thread it through both holes, then tie both ends together to make a handle.

Cut 2.5cm-wide strips from a plastic bag.

Spread a plastic bag out flat on the table. Use a marker and a ruler to draw 2.5cm-wide stripes across the bag from top to bottom. Cut along these lines with a pair of scissors. Make sure that you cut through both layers of plastic. How many strips you cut depends on how many strips you want your windsock to have. Plan on having about five to seven strips. To make a rainbow windsock, use different coloured plastic bags. You can also use party streamers, ribbon, or even cellophane!

Tie the strips to the plastic ring using slipknots.

Fold a plastic strip in half. Place the folded end into the ring so that it sticks out from the bottom by a few centimetres. Wrap the tail ends of the strip over the top edge, and pull then down through the loop. Tug on the tails to tighten the knot. Do this for all of the strips until the plastic ring is covered. You may need to cut more strips of plastic, depending on the size of the bottle.

No-bake salt dough ornaments

 No-cook playdough recipe.  

Every toddler loves squishing playdough, but have you ever tried making it with them? This recipe is so simple. The mixture doesn’t need cooking or boiling water added, which is great as hot playdough can scald little hands (in case he gets his eager mitts on it before it’s cooled). This is a totally safe one for your toddler to make, the only thing better than playdough to a toddler is making it. Take this activity outside as toddler-made playdough has to be the definition of messy fun!


• 2 cups plain flour • 1 cup salt • 1 cup cold water • 1 tbs oil • liquid food colouring


  • Step 1: In a large bowl, add the flour and salt. Stir.
  • Step 2: Add the water, oil, drops of food colouring (add as many drops as you like to get the desired hue)
  • Step 3: Knead the mixture until it has a playdough consistency (you may need to help with this bit to ensure it’s well-kneaded).
  • Tip! If consistency is too wet, add a little more plain flour.

Have fun making different coloured batches!
