Remember how much fun you had as a kid twirling those little pencil pinwheels? Now you and your children can relive that fun, with a patriotic twist.

Materials & Tools

Red and blue construction paper
Thumbtack
Pencil with new eraser
White craft glue
Scissors
Silver star stickers


Directions

Cut out two squares from the construction paper. To make a square, stack two rectangular sheets and fold the corner of the papers down to form a triangle. Cut along the folded line to create the squares.

Fold the squares into a triangle, and then fold in half again to make a smaller triangle. Unfold the paper.

Decorate each sheet of paper with the star stickers. Face the undecorated sides of the paper toward each other and make four cuts along the folded lines about halfway into the center.

Punch a hole in each corner of the pinwheel. Carefully gather each of the four points toward the center without creasing the paper.

Push a pin through the four punched holes into the center of the pinwheel. Attach the pinwheel to the side of a pencil's eraser with the push pin.
