Paper Pinwheel Flowers

We are celebrating my grandmother’s 98th birthday here this summer.  She just loves flowers, but due to the lack of rain, we don’t have a lot of colour in the gardens.  To fix this problem, my kids will be making Paper Pinwheel Flowers.  This is an easy craft but the kids will need a bit of help.

How to Make a Pinwheel Flower

  1. Cut several strips of colored paper 6″ to 8″ long.  Make them about 1″ to 1 1/2″ wide.
  2. Punch a hole in the middle of each strip.
  3. Place the strips together (alternating colors if you used multiple colors) and put a paper fastener through the middle.
  4. Cut a small hole in a straw and place the paper fastener through the hole and bend back the fastener to hold in place.
  5. Fan out the strips until they create a complete circle.
  6. Shape the ends of each strip by wrapping around a pencil.  This will create a curl for the flower petal.

Tip:  Make sure the curl goes in towards the center.

Thank you so much for stopping by this page to get to know a bit more about me and why I started Parent Guide Inc. My business story started a way back in 2001... …after the birth of my first daughter, I realized that an "all-in-one" resource guide for parents was needed, and fast! I designed the New Parent Resource Guide to fill a gap in the community for busy parents like myself. The New Parent Resource Guide offers an A-Z of key contacts for parents, caregivers, service providers, and health care professionals.  Working with key businesses and organizations in the community, we have also compiled much-needed articles, tips, and charts to answer all your parenting questions. The latest addition to our family is the School Age Resource Guide to serve parents of children, 3 to 18 years!  This guide answers questions about: nutrition, bullying, curriculum, building self-esteem, and much more, as well as offering a full directory of local and national resources. The website offers an “all-in-one” spot for parents to connect, add their own blog, and find needed resources in their community.  It is a site that educates and entertains and if you can't find somthing just ASK me. I am here to serve YOU!  My hope is that you connect with our members, find comfort in their words, and share your own story. My goal is to see what I can do to help make life a bit easier for you.   You are why I do what I do! I can’t wait to get to know you!  Comment below to tell me about yourself – then start blogging so we can find out what makes you get up in the morning!  Check out my blog too and I am sure you will be surprised what gets me out of bed each day!!!
