Okay, this is really one of those things that makes me roll my eyes. Apparently, today is International Peace Day. Great. We should all try to bring about peace in our lives. I'm just not really sure how making pinwheels does anything to achieve that end. The whole thing just kind of reminds me of that scene in Groundhog Day when Phil is trying to impress Rita:
Still, the project itself is cute, quick, and easy enough to do with a preschooler. So we did it.
You can use the template in the link or you can just wing it like we did. The first step is to color a sheet of paper. Square it off, then cut in from each corner toward the center, leaving about two inches uncut in the middle. Then, fold the left corner of each cut piece in to the center, stick a pushpin through all the layers, and stick the whole thing to a pencil eraser.
Then say a prayer and blow to world peace.
