How To Make a Patriotic Pinwheel
You Will Need
  • 2 8" X 8" pieces of card stock
  • A pencil with an eraser
  • Red and blue markers
  • A straightedge
  • Scissors
  • A hole punch
  • A pushpin
  • Glue (optional)
  • Silver glitter (optional)

Draw the outlines of stars on one side of one sheet of the card stock and color around them with the blue marker.
spacer tip You can glue silver glitter inside the stars for added pizzazz.
step 2Step 2: Outline stripes
Use your straightedge and the red marker to draw and color thick red stripes on one side of the other piece of card stock.
step 33: Make cuts
Square the blank sides of the cards together. Then make four cuts, one from each of the four corners, extending halfway to the center.
step 44: Punch holes
Punch a hole in each corner just to the left of each cut, about a half inch from the edges.
step 5Step 5: Gather
Fold each punched corner carefully toward the center, making sure not to crease the paper.

Poke a pushpin through the four punched holes and into the pencil eraser. Blow on your pinwheel and watch the swirl of patriotic pride.
