Every time we have a party we dress the dining room up with the strings of crepe paper and always have rolls of it left over. Its cheap and its fun but there has to be more to crepe paper than birthdays, right?
So in or question for all things Rainbow Crafting this month, we created a fun “wind sock” ( I realize its not a sock, but we call this ‘creative license’). The kids worked together on it very well! This craft also resulted in some serious glitter around the house, but it did make sure I mopped for about 10 days straight so I suppose this was a win/win.
Paper Plate Wind Sock
- Paper plate
- glitter (or markers to decorate)
- Rolls of crepe paper – $1 at Dollar Stores
Decorate your plate! I let the kids each have a plate. They glued it up with a glue stick and then covered in green glitter. You could cut the middle out of the plate if you want it to be easier to hold, but we left it hole because my son is only 2 and it was easier to dump the glitter.
Staple your crepe paper all around the paper plate. We made a “rainbow” with ours, but you can do any color scheme you would like! We precut our pieces and I did the stapling for everyone myself.
All done! It was really easy and the kids ran all around the house playing with the “wind sock”. I had Charlotte show it outside so you can see how fun this is! Its always the little simple projects that end up being the best. This project would also be fun for a group of kids at a party or picnic.
