Fourth of July Pinwheel Craft for Kids

We love 4th of July and all the fun it brings especially for kids. This easy to do pinwheel craft is a great way to decorate your home for the 4th of July and create memories. Every year make a pinwheel craft with your child and see how his or her artistic side develops. It’s fun to look back at the all the pinwheels!

What you need:

  1. Paper
  2. Scissors (adult use only)
  3. Crayons, markers or paint
  4. Tac (adult use only)
  5. Pencil, straw or doll-rod
What to do:
    1. Have your child color or paint on one side of the paper.

  1. When your child is finished, cut from the tip of each side of the paper towards the center. Make sure you don’t cut too deep so the paper separates.
  2. Fold the tips towards the middle.
  3. Place the tac through the middle holding the sides together.
  4. Write the year on back of pinwheel.
  5. Fasten to a pencil eraser or doll-rod.

Also, thanks to one of our Kolcraft employees and her 10-month old for taking the time to share their art! We look forward to seeing her art skills again soon.
