Thread brightly coloured leaves onto long sticks (dogwood is great as it thin and straight) Tie a piece of string around a small stick and cover with clay to make a ball. Stick your bright leafy sticks into the ball to make a star. Hang from a tree, twist and release. Watch it spin just like a Catherine wheel
This twirler was made by sticking lots of brightly coloured leaves onto a paper plate with PVA glue. Once dry cut the plate into a snail/spiral and hang in the wind.
