Science for Children: Windsocks

Science for Children

Science is fun – and small children love discovering the world around them.

This simple science experiment is crafty too, to make your own wind-sock to test which way the wind blows.

Of course this will work best on a windy day.

  1. Use an empty kitchen roll tube
  2. Cut up some strips of tissue paper or crepe paper
  3. Stick the paper strips inside the tube and hang the tube outside

Watch how much it moves and in which direction, to see how windy it is outside and which way the wind is blowing!

You could be really creative with the tube – we love these fish we found on pinterest.
