Wait Summer! Don’t Go! {A fun outdoor craft!}

Hello friends! Every month at my local library I have a free craft night for children. I wanted to show the kids how to make something that they could use outside during these last remaining weeks of summer and I decided on this fun fish windsock:

To make this craft you will need:

  • 9″x12″ watercolor paper or poster-board
  • crayons
  • watercolors/brush,water
  • fishing line or string
  • tacky glue or a hot glue gun
  • wiggle eyes
  • Time: This craft will take about 30 minutes

Note: to make this project weatherproof substitute the crepe paper with ribbon or strips of plastic (you could cut strips from a disposable plastic table cloth or plastic bag) and laminate the watercolor paper before gluing it into a cylinder.

Please watch the above video to see how it is made! Happy crafting!

  4. Thanks for this idea! I volunteer to do crafts in an elementary school and this is a great project for them. I think my 3rd graders could do everything but tie the string–some 8 year olds do not know how to tie–too much velcro on shoes!


  5. What a great project for me to do with my grandchildren.
    I think we will all love working on this. Thank you for all
