"A mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam
A windmill with a mouse in and he wasn't grousin'

Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam!""

Method
Use the hole punch to make a hole in the middle of each popsicle stick.

We used extra wide popsicle sticks but you can also make a hole with a hole punch in a regular sized popsicle stick


Turn the paper cup upside down and make a hole in the side using the skewer, close to the closed end of the cup. Get an adult to help make the hole and be careful with the skewer.

Fix both popsicle sticks to the cup by putting a butterfly clip (paper fastener) through the holes in each stick then through the hole in the cup.

As an extension with older kids, look at pictures of different types of windmill and learn how they were originally developed to mill grain. Look at modern wind turbines and explore how they are used to generate power.
