I wanted to do something fun this year to celebrate back to school. It's the first year all my kiddos will be in school and I am very excited about that! We just moved into a new house and are living amonst boxes and chaos. The kids' rooms are yet to be painted or decorated to their likings. So I thought it would be fun to surprise them with a fun room to celebrate their back to school. I used AstroBrights papers because they are vibrant and good quality. The idea was to make fun, bright, decor that I can hang in their room for them to wake up to on the first day of school! Or if I can't pull it off without waking anyone up it may have to be a surprise when they get home. Either way, I think they will love the festive decor. So I made up a bunch of these fun pinwheels.
I will hang them each from the ceiling with some clear fish line. The AstroBrights paper made fore the perfect pop and folded beautfully. They were super easy to make. Fold 2 or 3 pages like an accordian then staple together in the center and around the edges to fan your pages out.
You can even fold two different colors of paper together for a two toned look. The possibilities are endless and if your kids are old enough they can fold them up themselves!
