Make a Moon Winder
Whirling patterns dance on the spinning wheel of a moon winder. Similar to the bird-in-a-cage spinning toy popular in Victorian times, this easy-to-make moon winder delights its users with its spinning movement that creates beautiful designs in the air with each flick of the wrist. Your preschooler can complete this simple craft with just a little help from you. All you need to get started are a few materials from around the house: a plastic lid, construction paper, art supplies, glue, and a bit of twine.
