With just a little help from you, your kids can craft these handmade paper pinwheels to add a splash of color to playtime.


wooden pencils with erasers
straight pearl sewing pins
needle-nose pliers
colorful card stock or double-sided paper (available at your local scrapbooking store)

--STEP 1--

Using pliers, bend pins to create a 90-degree angle, approximately 1/3 of the length up from the pin's pointed end.

--STEP 2--

Cut paper into 4"x4" or 5"x5" squares. Using scissors, make four diagonal cuts toward the paper's center, stopping at least half an inch shy of the center.

--STEP 3--

Place paper on table and fold points to the left of each cut toward the center

--STEP 4--

Hold the folded points in place while you push a pin through the center, being careful to catch all four folded corners.

--STEP 5--

Next, gently guide paper around the bend in pin, sliding the pinwheel out to the pin's pearl end.

--STEP 6--

Firmly press the pin's pointed end straight down into the pencil's eraser. Give your pinwheel a spin!
