Step 1

To make this windmill, use an empty milk container for the house.

Step 2


Cut windows on the sides or paste colored paper on it.

Step 3

The roof is made from cardboard, attached with cellophane tape or Scotch tape.

Step 4

Cut the vanes or sails of the windmill from cardboard too, and fold it, following the pattern.

Step 5

Put a knitting needle through the house, with a cork on the back end to hold it in place. (MAKE SURE IT IS OKAY WITH YOUR PARENTS FIRST)

Step 6

Put another cork on the other end of the needle.

Step 7

Slip the sails on, and add a third cork in front. Leave enough space between the corks and the container, as in the picture, and the sails will turn in the wind.
