International Day of Peace

My son was excited to go to school today because they were making pinwheels for a pinwheel parade.

They were attaching the pinwheels using a push pin (I think) to a pencil eraser, and then the pencil becomes the stick to hold the pinwheel.

  1. I remember making origami pinwheels in school…oh, almost 50 years ago 😉 It’s great that your school is so in tune to social issues. Would love to see everyone, old and young alike, make their own pinwheels and stand up for peace! Teaching children social awareness is so important!
