How to Make a Pinwheel.
A simple toy that children like during windy days. (5/27/2006)
As the summer comes, children like to play outside while I try to be indoors like a rat. A pinwheel is a perfect toy, and easy, for children that likes to play outside. Here is how to build one.
Before starting this project, please read the disclaimer located in the main menu. In fact, DO NOT BUILD THIS PROJECT.
First, cut a square sheet.
Second, Locate the center and measure four inches from each corner to the center of the sheet.
Third, Cut four inches from each corner. Ask for an adult for this task. Even if you believe that you are an adult, ask to your mom if you are authorized to use scissors.
Next, Perforate each corner and one side of each corner. See the picture.
Put some tape to fix one side of each corner to the center. Perforate the center again.
Finally, Use the pin or the screw to fix the pinwheel to the stick. The pinwheel must be fixed in an angle so it can spin freely. The hole in the center should be big enough to allow it to spin.
Now I can have lots of fun with my pinwheel. As I'm fat and lazy after eating lots of junk food, I used a fan to make it spin instead of running with my pinwheel on hand.
