On the last day of school term the children received the gift of play in the form of a whirly gig! It was the perfect way to start the holidays. With the children heading home with colourful whirly gigs spinning in their wake.
At home we used some wet-on-wet watercolour paintings to make more, using the first as a template (and here is a template for you).
Together we cut around the outside of the whirly gig and down the middle to make the propeller. Then we cut the two smaller cuts into the body of the whirly gig. Next we folded one propeller part forward and one back. The sides of the body were folded in from where we made the smaller cuts too (like in the photo above).
Then we were all running around the house and backyard making them spin!
Happy crafting, Kelly
