Step by Step Instructions:
Enjoy this windmill summer craft ideas for kids. Not only is it fun to make it is a great tool to help teach about the wind!
Take your piece of paper and cut it into a perfect square.
An easy way to do this is fold the paper into a triangle, taking one corner and lining it up to the other side. This will leave excess on one side that, once cut, gives you a square!
Decorate both sides of the paper with whatever design you wish.
You can create a summer scene or just a fun design – like the colorful hearts we’ve created.
Fold the paper diagonally so it turns into a triangle and crease it lightly.
Repeat this for the opposite direction as well. You will then unfold and have a creased “X” on the page.
Cut along the creases about halfway to the middle of the paper. Be sure not to cut all the way.
Bend each corner into the middle. Make sure to bend and not fold.
Once all 4 corners are in the middle push the push pin through them all as well as the straw or eraser. Be careful not to hurt yourself with the pin!
