I taught Tom's preschool today, it's my turn for the next two weeks. We were learning about wind and I found this idea to make pinwheels. I was surprised how much they loved playing with them. They were very easy to make, but my version might be a little dangerous if the kids aren't careful - I used a straight pin to keep the four corners of the paper together and then pushed it through to the eraser part of a pencil. I only pushed the pin so that it didn't poke through the other side of the eraser, but if the kids push on the straight pin they could poke themselve - but none of the kids did, so far no pokes, just lots of fun.
