"These printable patriotic pinwheels are a fun afternoon craft to do with the kids. Display them throughout your yard for the Fourth of July or Memorial Day! Patriotic pinwheels are quick and simple to make and are fun to watch twirling in the breeze. You can place them in flower pots or even line your sidewalk with them. We always make these pinwheels to decorate outside, with some 4th of July coffee filter flowers for inside or on the party tables."
