I also have a homemade Wind Vane craft for you today
We had fun learning how to track which direction the wind is blowing. I actually got this set from the Magic School Bus science kits that we have been getting this year, which are a lot of fun. But it is so simple to make that I wanted to share!
Supplies to make it:
a small piece of clay, a straw, cardstock, a wooden skewer and some tape.
You need 2 double headed arrows cut from cardstock labeled E & W, N & S. Then you will need one more single sided arrow.
Stick the dowel into the clay. Punch holes in the middle of each double headed arrow and slide them both onto the skewer. Slide the straw onto the top. Tape the other arrow to the top of the straw.
Take your wind vane outside and adjust the bottom arrows to point in the correct direction.
(N-S-E-W) The wind will blow the top arrow and point in the wind is blowing!
You could do this to track the wind direction for a few days & record your results.
