Mindfulness Colouring in Pinwheel Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Years: 3 - 7

A fun mindfulness activity that involves colouring in and making a paper pinwheel.

Use this pinwheel template with instructions to create a paper pinwheel that can be used for mindful breathing activities.

Decorate the pinwheel with a paper straw, thumb tac and a stopper. While it’s true that pinwheels do turn better on a real pin the activity includes instructions for a no pin/split pin assembly too.

    Is there a second page for this? i.e larger template?

      Hi Jenna, there's only one page. If you're after a larger template you may like to try scaling up the size of the file and printing across two pages.
