Wind Socks

Take a rectangle of bristol board (or any stiff paper) and glue colorful streamers to one long edge. Staple the short edges together, and add string for a handle. You can decorate the rectangle with markers, stickers, paint... My brownies loved them. They are very easy to make and inexpensive too!

We also made wind socks with Brownies, but we used the top rim of a plastic drinking cup in place of the bristol board. The Brownies needed help in cutting the cups, particularly the younger ones (Brownies are 7-10 years old in the UK), but otherwise it was very easy. They loved playing with them, and played for ages!
