Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the complete drying time for the clay.
  • 2
    Clean and dry a recycled plastic water bottle. Carefully cut off the bottom and neck.

    Look online or in books for images of batik paper. Sunbursts, lizards, and geometrics are just a few possibilities. Measure and cut White paper to fit around the center of your water bottle. Fill the paper with color. Make several layers for intense hues. Glue your batik paper to the bottle.
  • 4
    Punch several holes along the bottom edge of the bottle. Punch two holes at the top to use for hanging.
  • 5
    With Crayola Model Magic, form stars, flowers, or other shapes to hang from the windsock. Air-dry your shapes for 24 hours.
  • 6
    Decorate the rest of the water bottle using window markers and other markers. Decorate and cut strips of paper to hang below or beside your shapes, such as stars and streamers, using construction paper and markers.
  • 7
    Decorate the clay shapes with window markers.
  • 8
    Glue the shapes and your paper strips to yarn or ribbon. Air-dry the pieces. Tie them in the bottom holes of the water bottle.
  • 9
    Tie yarn through the top holes to hang your windsock. Hang it indoors to catch a gentle breeze!
