Thank you to Netflix for partnering with me and my blog. I am a proud member of the #StreamTeam
Spring is in the air, finally! I feel like the winter went on and on. I am a room mom for Nathan’s class. I am in charge of their spring party. We will be doing a craft during the party. After doing some digging online I decided on a pinwheel craft. I feel like pinwheels are perfect for spring. They are easy enough to make that a room full of 6 and 7 years old can do it. I’m excited to bring this craft and in and see how much the kids love it. I always loved pinwheels as a kid.
They are pretty simple to make. The design possibilities are endless. Here’s what you will need:
Colored paper or card stock cut into squares
The first step is to glue two paper squares together. You need to make sure to cover the whole surface and not just the edges. After the glue has dried cut diagonal on each corner half way to the middle. Next, pull half of each corner to the center. Make sure not to crease the folds. You can secure it to the middle with glue or you can use the pushpin to hold it. Make sure the pushpin is pushed through all the corners you folded into the middle. Stick the pin through a small button. This will help your pinwheel spin better. Lastly, attach the pinwheel to the pencil by pushing the pin through the eraser. That’s it folks!
We will also be watching a movie at the party. I turned to Netflix for some suggestions. I always find movies on Netflix I would have never thought about. I’m thinking about one of these:
