Are you looking for a fun activity to do with your kids in preparation of our nation’s birthday?
Well, look no further! This pin wheel activity is cheap, fast, easy and FUN! (My four favorite things)
For this activity, you will need:
- a plain piece of paper
- crayons or markers
- pencil (with eraser)
- a bead
Start by making a square out of the paper.
Second, let the little ones decorate the paper. Encourage them to decorate both sides as they will both show in the end product. This was a great time to talk to my three-year-old about shapes. He decided to do big squares. Since it’s a Fourth of July craft, stars would also be applicable here.
Next, cut in on the diagonal lines until 2″ from the center.
Next, use your pin and start putting one corner from each side through the center pin.
Put the pin through the back side of the pin wheel and thread with bead.
Put the pin into the eraser end of the pencil.
