Things You'll Need
- Square sheet of paper
- Straight pin
- Non-mechanical pencil with eraser
Windmills are simple but entertaining toys. You can easily make a toy windmill using just a few simple steps. Best of all, you can use items around the house in your creation. If you'd like, this is a craft you can easily do with children as well.
Draw lines on the paper as shown below.
Cut along the lines on the paper, making sure not to cut through the center hole.
Gently fold each corner diagonally toward the center of the paper.
Stick the straight pin through the layers to keep them folded.
Stick the straight pin through the pencil's eraser.
You can make your windmill move by blowing on it or moving it through the air.
If you are making this craft with a child, use a brand new pencil. Sharpened pencil points can be dangerous to use around children.
