What You Need

Directions

  1. Cut each piece of your paper to 8”x 8” in size.
  2. Glue two pieces of different color/design papers together so it looks like one square.
  3. Use the ruler to draw an “X” on the paper, making sure you go all the way to each corner.
  4. Starting on each line from the corners, cut on them towards the center stopping about a half inch before the center of the “X”. It should look like you have four triangles connected at the center of the paper.
  5. Take any corner and fold it to the center of the paper, put a dab of glue on it, and press and hold down until it stays glued. Do not crease the fold.
  6. Now skip a corner and take the next corner and fold it to the center, put a dab of glue on it, and press and hold down until it stays glued. Repeat this with two more corners. Four corners will be folded towards the center, and the other four will be flat still.
  7. Take a push pin and poke it through the front side of your pinwheel at the center point where you glued making sure it goes all the way through the back.
  8. Take a pencil and poke that pin into the side of the eraser and stop just before it pokes through the other side.
  9. The pinwheel is now attached so that the pencil is the stick you hold, or you push into the ground.
