Learn how-to make a pinwheel with Pooja from The Craftables.
Cut out a square and draw lines joining opposite ends with a pencil.
Cut along the drawn lines till the centre. Stop when you are about a centimetre away from the central point.
Add a little glue on the right corners of each triangle. Fold these corners to the middle and stick them. These need to overlap.
Insert a pin through the central point where all 4 flaps meet.
Put a small piece of double sided tape on one end of the straw and put a small piece of paper on top of it. This is to make sure the tape does not stick to anything, while holding the straw in place. You can also twirl some ribbon on the straw.
Push the pin through the tape and slightly out of the straw. Put another piece of tape at the end, to ensure the pin doesn’t poke anyone.
