Free Kids Workshop – Pinwheels for Peace

September 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us for this free activity for kids. Pinwheels for Peace was started by two retired art teachers. Today thousands of children make pinwheels and plant them in a peace sign on International Peace Day on September 21.  We are honored to have retired art teacher, Lenore Eastman,  (many of you may know her from Thornebrooke Elementary) volunteering her time and talents to facilitate this fun craft project here at Nehrling Gardens.  Kids will be able to complete and take home a Pinwheel for Peace to plant in their home garden on September 21st.  The event is free but registration is required.


Imagine…  millions of pinwheels spinning in the wind – pinwheels in the United States, Great Britain, South America, Australia, the Middle East, Canada,  Africa, Europe and Asia;  pinwheels all over the world! – big pinwheels, small pinwheels;  pinwheels of all  shapes and sizes – colorful pinwheels, decorated with drawings, paintings, collages, photographs  – pinwheels with words of peace and harmony written on them – fields of pinwheels, pinwheels along roadsides, in schoolyards, in parks, pinwheels EVERYWHERE!

Register HERE

The event will be outside at Nehrling Gardens.  We will follow all Orange County protocols for Covid-19.
