A whirligig is something that twirls in the wind. It can be made of various materials and is usually seen hanging from a porch or tree where the wind can make it twist and spin. If you're looking for an easy summertime craft for the kids, this is it. Just put out the supplies and watch the fun begin!
Things You'll Need
- Paper plate
- Hole puncher
- Crayons, markers, color pencils or paint
Decorate the paper plate with any design you like. It can be different colors or all one color. Get creative!
Cut the paper plate into a spiral pattern. Start at the edge and cut in a spiral toward the center.
Punch a hole in the center of the plate.
Tie the string through the hole in the center.
Hang the whirligig up and let the wind twirl it around, or hold the string and run with it, watching it spin!
