Air is constantly on the move. The movement of air from a high-pressure area to a low-pressure area causes the wind to blow. These windy projects take advantage of air pressure to make them work. Projects include:
Plastic Canvas Whirler - see the effects of wind when you hang this whirler outside on a breezy day.
Wrapping Paper Kite - make your own kites from wrapping paper and sticks. Kites are a great way to see wind direction and enjoy the effects of the wind.
Cowboy Wind Chime - feel and hear the wind as it blows. Create a fun wind chime with bandanas, glue, and old silverware.
Sail Away - a sailboat is a perfect example of our dependence on the wind. The sailboat has a 90s twist, the entire surface, boat and sails, is tie-dyed with non-aerosol spray paint.
Fish Windsock - recycle a two-litre bottle with foam scales for a whimsical windsock. The hollow design will catch the wind and swim through the air.
