DIY Pinwheels

(Disclaimer- I use no affiliate links in this post.) 

September 21st is Pinwheels for Peace in celebration of World Peace Day. Each year the middle schoolers at my school make pinwheels to decorate our front lawn. It is a pretty big event, which makes that night’s news each year. 

This year, I had T make a few pinwheels. Using dabber paints, his turned out pretty good! So, here’s how it’s done:

STEP 6- “Plant” your pinwheel in the grass. 



    I am a middle school teacher and a mother of two. I have always had a passion for education. As an educator, I know that the children who are the most successful students are those who have families who support their education at home.
