Every 2 weeks Bethany receives a Toucan Box. We have been so busy lately that we've fallen a bit behind with doing them! So here's Toucan Box no.3.
In this Toucan Box we received the bits to make a Windsock!
This took two days to make as we had to wait for the Glitter Glue to dry.
We received a piece of Red square fabric, a piece of Black foam, 2 pipe cleaners, glue dots, some Purple Ribbon and 3 Glitter Glue Pens (Silver, Green & Purple).
First you have to attach the foam to the Red fabric using some of the glue dots.
Then on the other side start decorating the Red fabric with the Glitter Glue Pens.
Once this is done it needs to completely dry before going onto the next stage. We let ours dry for 24 hours.
Once dry you need to line one edge of the Red fabric with the glue dots (ensuring the foam is at the top of the fabric still). Then roll it to make a cylinder shape and seal the edges.
Poke a skewer (adults only) into opposite sides of the Red fabric and foam, then pop the pipe cleaner through both holes and bend the pipe cleaner to secure it.
Then tie the ribbon to the pipe cleaner and hang your windsock outside. Unfortunately at the time we made the windsock and put it outside there really wasn't much wind!
