Paper Pinwheel

We can’t see the wind but we can feel it. We also can’t see the Holy Spirit but He is with us.

What You Need

  • 2 pieces of square Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Button(optional)
  • Tongue depressor/straw/stick


  1. Take 2 equal sized-square papers.

  2. Glue the papers together, back to back, and allow to dry completely.

  3. Hold the paper diagonally. Fold it in half horizontally, then open the fold. Now fold it in half again – this time vertically. These folds will help you to make the pinwheel look accurate.

  4. Now make cuts halfway towards the center on all four points, along the creases.

  5. Take the top points in the upper right corner and bring them towards the center. Glue in place.

  6. Repeat the gentle folding in and gluing for the remaining three corners.

  7. Glue the button to the center of the pinwheel covering the four points.

  8. Glue a tongue depressor/straw/stick to the back of the pinwheel.
