Fun craft for everyone (with directions)

These lovely girls are from church. At mutual last week I showed them how to make pinwheels. We made quite a bunch to hand out to all the Mom's on Mother's Day. They are quick and easy...and super fun.

Here are the directions:
The best paper to use is double sided, that way you have a pattern all the way around your pinwheel.
(If you click on each picture you can read the written directions)

Once you've finished all that...I just hot-glued a wooden skewer to the back. If you wanted you could paint the skewer first...or add a little piece of ribbon. In the Mother's day pinwheels, I punched out a 2in scallop and then stamped a little sentiment on to it. Then attached them to the skewer. Well there you have it. Hope you have fun making pinwheels.

These are so cute...what a great mothers day gift it would be. I always thought homemade gifts from anyone are so much more thoughtful and have so much more love in them! Great work on showing the girls.
