Independence Day Whirligig Craft

Pierce and I decided to do some crafts to celebrate July 4th, which is quickly approaching. 
This one was really simple - perfect for a toddler.
Have your toddler color a paper plate in red and blue marker (in retrospect, we should've colored both sides)
After coloring, we added some gold glitter glue for sparkle.
You could also add in sequins or pom
 poms or anything else you had handy.

Then take a fairly large button.  Thread yarn through it.
Take a pencil and poke a hole in the center of your paper plate.
Then thread the yarn/button through.

Finally, starting on the outside, cut your paper plate in a large spiral towards the center.
Now it's ready to hang and swing in the wind!
