This week we’re going to take a trip ‘back in time’ and create a pinwheel. Pinwheels are from the 19th century; a modern version being introduced in 1919 by an Armenian immigrant toy manufacturer, Tegran M. Samour. (Source: Wikipedia)

Alright, let’s get started! First, you’ll need some supplies:

  • Printer paper (not card stock)
  • Scissors
  • Straight Pins
  • Pencils with erasers
  • Tape
  • Markers
  • Pinwheel Spinners Template

The first thing you’ll need to do is print your template using the link below.
(NOTE: there are 2 templates you will get in one file – butterflies & flowers)

Once you have it printed, color the pages. I colored mine with fine point Sharpie markers, but you can use colored pencils, or any other medium you wish:

Once they are colored, cut them out and cut along the lines. Once cut, gather all your supplies:


Now it’s time to assemble the pieces into pinwheels. You’ll do this by bringing the folded pieces together and using

tape to secure the pieces in place:


Now it’s time to use a stick pin and thread it through the paper like this:


Now grab a pencil and stick the pin into the eraser:


Push the pin into the eraser until it comes all the way through the other side and the pencil eraser is touching the center of the pinwheel:


Bend the pin over and use tape to cover it:


And voila, there you have it – pinwheel spinners. I stuck mine in a flower pot for some fun colorful decoration:
