    Cut a cardboard roll to fit inside the fish. Punch several holes in one end. Cut ribbons of varying lengths, and tie the ribbons in the holes. Insert the cardboard roll in the fish so the ribbons hang out the back.

    Punch one hole on each side of the fish’s mouth. Wrap ribbon around a dowel stick and loop the ribbon through the hole on the fish’s mouth, allowing the fish to dangle from the dowel. Display your windsock indoors or outdoors where it will stay dry. Watch the colors flash and splash as your art blows in the gentle breeze!
