If your kids love the book The Cat in the Hat, make these Thing 1 and Thing 2 windsocks to celebrate the upcoming Dr Seuss Day. They make a nice craft to go along with the book. Besides, they are so much fun to decorate your house or yard with.
Inspired by the heart windsocks we made for Valentine’s Day, we have decided to create these new windsocks to go along with one of our favorite books.

Tin can Thing 1 and Thing 2 windsocks supplies:
These are the craft materials that we used but you can replace the crepe streamers with ribbons or the hot glue with Elmer’s glue. (You just need to wait until the glue dries before using your windsocks).
Step 1: Remove the bottom of the tin cans as well as the labels.
Step 2: Paint the tin cans red. We applied two layers of paint on each can.
Step 3: Glue Thing 1 sign on one can and Thing 2 sign on the other can. We found the signs online bu googling “Thing 1 and Thing 2 signs”
Step 4: Cut 8 pieces of the crepe streamer of the same length for each can. Glue them at the bottom of the tin can, on the inside.
