Making a rainbow windsock is a fun St. Patrick's Day craft for kids. For this craft you will need a sheet of yellow felt, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple ribbon, fabric glue, and scissors. Start this project by helping kids cut long pieces of ribbon from all of the colors. If the ribbon is thin you may like to use more than one piece.

Help kids glue each ribbon to the shorter edge of the felt and allow it to dry. Next help kids roll the felt into a tube and glue the long sides shut to keep it secure. When the tube has dried cut a hole in opposite sides of the windsock where there is no ribbon and tie a piece of ribbon into each hole. Tie the ribbons together at the top allowing room to hang your windsock, and your St. Patrick's Day rainbow craft is complete.

When you have all of these pieces together help kids paint them; use all of the colors to paint the rainbow, and use the black and yellow to paint the pot of gold. Remember to paint both sides of the cardboard because they will both be visible. Also allow kids to paint the circle whatever colors they like; green is a good color for this St. Patrick's Day craft.
