Memorial Day is just around the corner; what a great long weekend to spend time with family and honor those have gone before us! Now that I have a child, I wanted to create a printable that would be fun and easy to make that he could bring to decorate at the cemetery. It also serves as a fun toy to keep at home.

Step 2: Glue the two squares together back to back, decorative sides facing out.

3. Cut across the diagonal lines on your square, careful not to cut all the way to the middle.

4. With the loose flaps, fold in every other corner towards the center. Glue and/or tape for support if needed. (Ignore my chipped nail polish)…

5. [You can skip steps 5 and 6 if you don’t care for this to spin and just anchor down the corners with glue/tape]

Take your push pin and insert it in the middle of the pinwheel, catching all your folded corners. *Tip: it helps to pre-poke the holes on the corners and in the middle so threading the pin is easier*

6. Bend the back of the pin so it’s a 90 degree angle, and insert it into the eraser of a pencil:

If you don’t want your pinwheel to spin, just tape it to a straw or wooden skewer. Viola! The finished products!
