Firecracker Pinwheel Project

You know how it goes. You see a darling craft project and determine to replicate it. Except it’s complicated, expensive and turns out to be somewhat of a disaster. Not this one! You can make a pinwheel in a couple of minutes. They’re easy and yes, I’ll say it — they’re cheap! They also make delightful table decorations. So Annie, get your glue gun! It’s time to get crafty.

Let’s begin … step one is the most important: HAVE FUN. No pressure, no expensive supplies — you’ll need paper, sticks, stapler and hot glue. This project is quick and simple, and you can involve the whole family. Have them gather small sticks — a perfect way to involve little people in this project! You could turn it into a treasure hunt, too — for older little boys who need competitive motivation (ask me how I know)!
