  • Step 1Pop the windmill head out from the card.
  • Step 2Sketch out your design onto a piece of paper before you start to decorate your windmill. Once you have a design, transfer it lightly onto your windmill using a pencil. This is not essential, but helps with planning your design.
  • Step 3Use coloured markers to apply your design to the windmill. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Assemble the windmill by placing the skinny end of the plastic shaft through the centre of the windmill.
  • Step 5Pull one sail of the windmill down onto the plastic shaft. Thread the shaft through the pre-cut holes. Repeat this with the other sails in a clockwise direction until all four of the sails are threaded on the plastic shaft.
  • Step 6Thread the flower washer onto the plastic shaft to hold the sails in position.
  • Step 7Place the plastic washer over the shaft to secure the flower washer and windmill in place. Insert the straw into the plastic shaft.
  • Pull the back of the windmill forward so that it is not resting against the plastic shaft. This will help it to spin!
