This craft step by step on how to make paper windmill that spins around, is one of my favorite fun and easy summer craft ideas for kids. Like most of my other crafts these will make a great toy windmill to take outside too, as well as to the beach. My DIY Windmill project comes with a list of instructions.
Paper crafts are cheap and super simple to put together in a short space of time. Plus they are suitable for kids of any age. I’ve got to admit I absolutely love crafting with paper!
This DIY windmill project for kids will be kids favorite that’s for sure. My children are always begging me to buy one of these in the shops before we go to the beach!
They simply love watching it spin around in the wind! They also blow to make it move around when there is no wind! It is one of our best paper crafts for kids
Now we can make our own and add any design we wish!
If you love this paper windmill you will adore my house pinwheel craft, which is basically a tiny windmill!! You can see it below.
How To Make A Paper Windmill That Spins Around Using Paper and Scissors
There are lots of summer crafts your little ones can do. Today, they’ll find out how to make a windmill at home. A paper windmill craft is so much fun!
I remember when I was a child, how much I enjoyed running around “making wind” for my paper windmill. Encourage your child’s creativity and suggest using a magazine picture instead of plain paper. Then take him/her out and let them test their summer windmill!
Instead of just plain paper, use a picture or some design that will look cool when turning in the wind!
Make sure you follow the create windmill instructions carefully so that your windmill does indeed spin around!
This DIY windmill project for kids is not only fun to make, but also a great tool to help teach about the wind! The supplies for this craft are simple, and you can find them all on Amazon. We got our card-stock at a great price (see below for a great deal). I hope kids will have fun with their new toy windmill. Some people like to tell me this is an origami windmill as it does involve some folding stages.
