Windsocks Painted with Watercolor

There are many good tutorials online about painting windsocks, so my purpose is just to share a couple insights that I discovered when making them with about forty pre-schoolers. My first realization was that the paper on the windsocks that I purchased could withstand a lot of very wet paint. For the windsock pictured I used very bright liquid watercolors. I also attached my ribbon hangers BEFORE the children did the painting. The windsocks come with a strip of card stock that is glued along the mouth of the fish. I simply looped the ribbon underneath the card stock and glued them at the same time. This saved me from gluing all the ribbon hangers at the end.
