Fun wind sock craft made from a few simple supplies. Learn with the kids how to make a windsock with colorful paper and some simple craft supplies.
We made these super cute Paper Wind Socks Craft while we were camping recently, and they were a hit of the campsite.
Today we’re talking Camping Crafts for Kids and we’re showing you a fun craft that will keep the kids occupied (for a few minutes at least) and jazzes up the look of your campsite as an added bonus. One of our favorite crafts while camping are paper windsocks.
The beauty of this craft is that it can be done during any season. Spring windsocks are fun for the kids right as the flowers are blooming and its time to get out and decorate the yard.

Craft Supplies Needed For Windsock Craft
- Colored construction paper
- Stapler or scotch tape
- Travel Scissors
- Hole punch
- curling ribbon
- Decorative tapes, stickers, markers
How to Make a Windsock
These are really not too difficult to make. Added bonus, it helps the toddlers and preschoolers with fine motor skills too!
Have each of the kids pick out a piece of paper they want to decorate.
Let them go wild with stickers, tape, tissue paper pieces, crepe paper, and markers decorating how they want. Fun to let their creativity come out, especially after a full day of camping.
Crafts Ideas for the Kids while Camping
After they are done decorating, you will need to roll it into a cylinder shape tube and using either tape, or my quick and simple stapler, attach the ends together to where you’re creating a tube.
Once you have the tube, its time to add the balloon ribbon.
Using the hole puncher, punch 4 or more holes along the bottom of the tube.Cut the ribbon however long they want. I like to cut them around 2-3 feet and then have them tie or you may need to help the little ones tie them to the holes you punched.Two more holes on the top are needed to hang your windsock. One more piece of ribbon about 6 inches. Tie each end to the two holes.
Viola, you have yourself a campsite windsock.
