The Windy Farm - Activity Time

Create a Pinwheel

What you need:

  • A square piece of coloured paper

  • Ruler

  • Pencil

  • Scissors

  • Hole punch

  • Pin or a split pin

  • Straw or piece of dowel

    On your piece of paper, draw two diagonal lines from corner to corner.
    Cut along the diagonal lines, leaving 3 cm uncut towards the centre of the paper.

    You will have created four sections. Use the hole punch to create a hole in the top left hand corner of each section.

    Fold the holes to the centre of the paper and secure with a pin.
    Pierce the pin into the straw or dowel.
    Take the pinwheel outside to roughly measure wind direction and speed.
