How to Make a Stars and Stripes Pinwheel

Categories // Paper Crafts

Stars and Stripes Pinwheel


Best for older children.

Supplies:
2 pieces of white construction paper (the thicker the better)
Scissors
A pushpin
A pencil with an eraser
Crayons

To start, make two square pieces of paper by folding a triangle out of one end of each sheet and trimming off the upper edge.  Unfold your paper and decorate one side of each sheet. Place the undecorated sides of the paper together.

Fold your paper into a triangle, then fold that triangle in half.  Unfold the papers and find the center point.  Make cuts running from each corner toward the center, stopping at about the halfway point.  

Gently gather each corner, taking care to be consistent in taking either the left or right corner from each triangle.  Let the paper bend and billow up as you bring the corners together. Push a pushpin through the four overlapped corners and through the center of the pinwheel.  Then push the pin into a pencil's eraser.
