Materials (all in red, white, or blue):

  • empty toilet paper roll
  • paint
  • paintbrush or sponge
  • crepe paper or curling ribbon
  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • chenilles
  • glue

To Make:

First, paint the toilet paper roll.  While it’s drying, cut various sized stars out of the construction paper.  Tape or glue the stars to the dry toilet paper roll.  Cut the crepe paper into thin strips and tape inside one opening of the toilet paper roll to make your windsock streamers.  In the other end, punch holes on opposite sides and thread the chenille through to create a hanger.  Hang outside whenever you are feeling patriotic!
