Cut the paper on the lines but not inside the circle.
Bend each of the corners marked with an “X” in Picture 3 into the center of the circle.
Put a straight pin through the four corners and the center of the paper. Then put the pin into the eraser on the end of a pencil.
Now the pinwheel should spin in the wind, when you blow on it, or when you run with it.
Different decorations on a pinwheel will make new and interesting patterns as it spins.
