Wind Spinners

We made our own wind spinners out of paper plates to show the wind outside.

We started with a plain white paper plate

Then we colored them with crayons. (We didn't use markers because in Washington the air is so damp, I didn't want the colors to run!) Color the whole plate though since it will be cut.
After the plate is colored, cut it from the outside spiraling in to the center. Leave the center big enough to punch a whole in the center.

Tie a ribbon, string or yarn through the hole in the center

Tie it up outside and wait for the wind!
