DIY Windsocks - 12 pcs.
We used these with fabric markers. I did iron them as they were very wrinkled. I gave the kids a variety of stencils from oriental trading. They turned out fantastic. 1 winsock out of 72 was sewn improperly.

nice but not easy
These windsocks are of a great quality, however, my students found them hard to decorate - they didn't take the color of fabric markers well, and paint made them stiff, though beautiful. Since are using them to decorate the 175th anniversary celebration of our church, I ended up decorating most of them. The students simply got bored too easily.

Hard to work with for kids
I was disappointed with the finishing of the streamers
the top was just fine. It is hard to have kids work on these without putting a cardboard in the middle so the colors don't bleed through. They take a lot of paint to color well, so maybe my complaint is with the fabric makers not the windsocks. The kids found it hard to draw what they wanted on the top part. Our colorful
windsocks did add to our event.
