Pinwheels are a welcome part of many different summer celebrations. Planning a block party? Heading out for the local Fourth of July parade? Make some pinwheels to bring along as entertainment for the kiddos.
The construction paper you have around the house just won't cut it for this particular project. Instead, visit the scrapbooking paper section at your local craft store and choose some vibrant, colorful prints to use for your pinwheels. Specialty paper stores like The Paper Source also offer a nice selection of Japanese-style decorative paper.
