Little Windmill Project Answered

Hey everyone a while ago I was cleaning out my closet and found a little micano car, it had a motor on it I was wondering is it possible to use that to generate a little bit of wind energy, if so can someone who knows alot in this field explain how to I intend to have it as a show thing and is it possible to have different colored LED's and if it is windy it will light the all 3 and if its not it will light like 1 or 2 sort of like a wind gage. Anyway thanks for reading sorry if this is a stupid idea.

I like the idea.

In my experience, some dc motors are better generators than others. Test it by chucking the shaft in a drill, and spinning it up.
