Pinwheels are such a fun site for spring! Add a little pinwheel fun in your life by making this adorable pinwheel matching game with your child.

You will need:
5 sets of 2 matching 4″x4″ square pieces of scrapbook patterned paper
10 4″x4″ square pieces of solid color paper
paper straws

Glue the back sides of the patterned scrapbook paper and the solid color paper together. All of the pinwheels need to have the same color back. Then, cut 1 1/2 inches in at the corners in a diagonal. Fold in the corners to form a pinwheel. Repeat this step with all 10 4″x4″ squares. Glue the paper straws on to the back of the pinwheels.

To play, flip all of the pinwheels over and take turns picking up pinwheels to find the matching patterns. The person, in the end, with the most matching pinwheel sets wins. It’s a fun and easy twist on an old loved game! A perfect activity to bring along to any spring time outing or picnic.
