What? Oh, you're saying I'm not the weatherman. Yeah, I know. I also know I am not nearly skinny enough to be the weathergirl and so that is why the weather commentary ends here. But my point was that it's raining and so we can't go walking or pretend jogging** with the double stroller and so we needed an activity.
And that's why, after much deliberation, we made pinwheels, using nothing but some paper, paper fasteners, scissors and straws. And a hole puncher.
Northern Cottage did such a fantastic job on her pinwheel tutorial that there was no where for me to go with mine but down.
These were actually so easy to make once we got the hang of it that I had to wonder: if I made enough of these guys, could I generate enough wind with them in the backyard to take us off the electrical grid and save some money each month? Something to think about.
Anyway, because I followed someone else's tutorial and didn't change it up at all, I will just share pictures of my fun, dreary-day brightening pinwheels - and then I will go have a hot chocolate, because even though it's almost the end of May, it's pretty chilly out there. I better hurry though, my girls feel asleep after trying to make those pinwheels turn. All that blowing knocked them out, but you know that never lasts as long as it should.
** to get skinny enough to be a weathergirl, obviously.
