Air is constantly on the
move. Warm air rises and cold air flows downward. The movement
of air from a high pressure area to a low pressure area causes
the wind to blow. The greater the difference in pressure between
the two areas, the fiercer the wind. Our Windy projects all take
advantage of air pressure to make them work. Get ready to fly
like the wind with five projects.
Plastic Canvas Whirler:
See the effects of wind when you hang this whirler outside on
a breezy day. Watch it spin as the air catches it's colorful
sails. The holes on plastic canvas make it the perfect surface
to catch the wind.
105-2 Wrapping Paper Kite: This project is all you need
to 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.
105-3 Cowboy Wind Chime: You can feel the wind as it
blows and with this project you'll also be able to hear it!
Create a fun wind chime with bandannas, glue and of all things,
105-4 Sail Away: A sail boat is a perfect example of
our dependence on the wind. Without wind the boat would remain
still in the water. Your sailboat has a 90's twist, the entire
surface, boat and sails, is tie dyed with non-aerosol spray
105-5 Fish Windsock: Recycle a two liter bottle with
fun foam scales for a whimsical wind sock. The hollow design
will catch the wind and swim through the air.
105-6 Hands-On Project: Learn about a craft project designed
by a 10 year old girl to help a defray the medical costs of
