"A mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam
A windmill with a mouse in and he wasn't grousin'
He sang every morning "How lucky I am
Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam!""
(song by Dicks and Rudge)
Have fun making a windmill for a little mouse
using some recycled materials.

: Under 5's, 5-10's
We used extra wide popsicle sticks but you can also make a hole with a hole punch in a regular sized popsicle stick
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.
