Canadian Wind Sock Craft

Supplies needed:
A cylindrical cardboard box (like from oatmeal or ice tea or hot chocolate)
Construction paper (red and white)
Red and white crepe paper streamers
Hole punch

Cut the bottom off a cylindrical cardboard box.
Let child glue on red and white construction paper to look like the background of the Canadian flag. Cut out a small red maple leaf and glue it on the white central part of the windsock.
Cut some red and white crepe paper streamers and glue or staple them to one end of the wind sock.
Punch four holes along the top of the wind sock.
Cut two pieces of string about a foot long. Tie the strings to the wind sock (tie the opposite ends of a string to holes on opposite sides of the cylinder).
Tie a longer piece of string to the smaller pieces - you'll hang the wind sock from this piece of string.
Hang it up!
