invent a windmill

Ok we don’t expect kids to build a real working windmill just yet, so this idea is a bit simpler. It’s an origami windmill. With practice these can be built fairly quickly and your kids can make modifications on them if they choose. Like some of the other ideas, this one is good to teach kids about the importance of the environment, and of finding alternate energy means.

It’s quite hard to explain in text how to do this, so I’ve found a nice little video for your kid to watch:

So watch that video a few times and get your kid to practice making the windmill a few times. Once your kid is proficient, he or she can demonstrate to the class, and soon everyone will start inventing their own kinds of windmills. Hopefully that will give some inspiration for them to go and make the real thing.
