There is an old-time tradition of wearing new clothes to Church on Easter Sunday. The reason that this tradition was started was to show that you promise a new spiritual redemption. There is an Easter parade every year in New York City, and this is where the tradition of Easter bonnets started. People would wear fancy new hats / bonnets to church and then afterwards they would march in the Easter parade while wearing their new bonnet. These days it is hard to find an Easter bonnet as they don't sell them much any more. That is why this page, with Easter bonnet crafts is a great resource. I hope you enjoy the crafts.
The pinwheel on this play Dutch Mill Easter Hat will turn around in the breeze. Remove the lid from a quart size ice cream container (after washing it out), and turn the container upside down.

With the scissors, make 4 slashes in the paper square, one from each corner, as in illustration A. Fold each corner, ( Point X ), one over the other, to the center (Point X ). Force a metal head paper fastener through all four points in the center of the pinwheel, and fasten to the front of the mill. Paint the container lid green and allow it to dry thoroughly.
