Have fun crafting your own insect-inspired windmill and watch it whirl.

With Wendy Scott, create a whirly beast windmill inspired by your favourite flying bug or animal. When you are done, position it somewhere outside and watch it spin and whirl.

You will need:

  • Square coloured paper 15×15 cm
  • Paper strips 1 cm wide
  • Pins with heads
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil with eraser on the end
  • Glue stick
  • Stickers or collage paper

Activity needs parental supervision due to use of scissors.
