Kids are the true Artists of Life
In this section we will provide things to do for children: crafts, painting, decorations - and of course we have the theme of the Alps.
We will show what children from the Alps are playing with and provide you with examples and designs for glass paint, typical seasonal decorations you can find in Austria, Slovenia, North-Italy, South-Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and South-East-France.
Handmade wind or pinwheels are a nice decoration in summer for flower boxes, the entrance door or for the balcony or even a nice eye-catcher on a gift package.
Coloured paper, scissors, nails - get readdy for pinwheels session
Mini pinwheels can be a colourful table decoration or even a funny idea for place cards. For children's birthday parties or summer festivals they can be nice invitations.
It is fairly easy to produce your own pinwheels.
The basic equipment

a nail or rice purposes

Our collection of pinwheels, with invitations and name tags
Cut the paper on the corners towards the middle. Drill a whole in the middle of the paper and attach with the help of nail and Co to the rod.
For the pinwheel you can use firmer gift paper or even a pretty decorative foil. If you want it more durable use oilcloth or the material used for plastic tablecloth.
If you tinker with children best use thicker paper, this can be painted as liked.
