Step 1: Preparation
a plastic cup
something sharp enough to poke a hole in a plastic cup
Step 2: Cut Out the Shapes
Cut out the two circles.
As for the rectangle and the scarf, fold the paper in half to cut out two rectangles and a longer scarf.
Step 3: Poke Some Holes
Make sure the hole is bigger than the width of the straw so that the straw has room to spin smoothly.
Step 4: Insert the Circles
Step 5: Glue Them Onto Little Strawhead
Step 6: A Working Wind Vane!
Yay! Your mini-wind-vane is finished! Enjoy!
Note: If Strawhead is not looking directly at where the wind is coming from, adjust the scarf. Make sure
it is not curved. Also, I recommend that you glue something heavy under the cup or tape the cup to
a fixed position so that it wouldn't be blown off.
Author's note: This piece is hard for me since I'm on vacation. All my things are at home. Here, they only have a piece of orange construction paper, plastic cups, LOTS of straws, some permanent markers, tape, knives, and a left-handed scissor. It took me some imagination to think of what I can make out of that. :)
