Paper Windmill


  • Sheets of cardboard
  • Paint, crayons, colouring pens
  • Straw
  • Split pins


  • Cut the cardboard to perfect squares.
  • Decorate each sheet of cardboard.
  • Fold the square diagonally from one side to the other and then do the same to the other side. So you will have a cross on the square.
  • Cut in from each corner to about halfway up. Do not cut too high up.
  • Make a small hole in the centre of the square (where the two folds intersect). Make a small hole on the tip of alternating corners.
  • Fold the corners with a hole to the centre. Place the split pin through the holes and open at the back.
  • Make a hole through the straw and push the split pin through as well.
