March is one of the windiest months of the year. Turn your cool Crayola Color Explosion designs into Wild March Wind Wheels that spin with the slightest breeze.
Use Crayola Scissors to cut Crayola Color Explosion Paper into an 8-inch (20cm) square.
Use a Crayola Colored Pencil to draw an X from corner to corner on the back of the Color Explosion square. Use a ruler to draw straight lines that cross at the exact center of the square.
Cut along the colored pencil lines from each corner about 2/3 of the way toward the center.
Cut a small circle where the two lines intersect in the center of the square. Or ask an adult to poke a pencil through to make a center hole.
Place the square white-side-up. Use scissors (or use a hole punch) to make a hole in the right corner of each side of the square.
Turn the square over. Design the black side of the Color Explosion paper with a Color Explosion marker.
Tie a bead on the end of a piece of string. Thread the string through the middle hole, through the black side of the paper. Pull the string all the way through until the bead holds outside the hole.
Next thread the string through each of the flaps. Each time go in the white side and out the black side, bringing the string back over the edge to go into the next hole to the right.
When the string is through all four holes, pull tight to make a pinwheel. Thread another bead onto the string to keep the pinwheel in place. Tie a large knot on the other side of the bead to keep it all together.
Experiment by stringing different paper shapes above the Wind Wheel to see how they move in the wind. Use your own ideas or try this: • Punch a hole at each end of a long strip of Color Explosion paper. String and tie a bead anchor through one hole then
