    Did you know that many tales about wild animals just aren't true? The King of the Jungle doesn't live in a jungle. Lions live on grassy plains. Lionesses (females) in the pride do all the hunting. Do you want to show a ferocious animal on your windsock? How about a hippopotamus with its mouth open wide in warning (it's not a yawn)? Or a ferocious ostrich? These birds kick with their strong legs when challenged. They do not bury their heads in the sand.

    With Crayola Scissors, cut thin construction paper strip fringe for the windsock tail. Glue the strips to the bottom of the paper roll. Cut a wider paper strip for a handle. Glue the handle to the top of the windsock. Hang it indoors for a delightful decoration.
