Re:[teacherartexchange] pinwheel problems


Date: Thu Sep 01 2005 - 05:37:23 PDT

Advice needed here. I embraced the idea of pinwheels for peace, but how to

Problem #1: Hard clay soil. I broke my 1/4" dowel shoving the pinwheel into
garden soil this morning!!! I was so careful, but it still broke. And the kids
will not all be able to use the garden. They will need to insert the dowels into
the grassy edge of the driveway. Any advice on this?

Problem #2: drilling the dowels partway, nailing in the nail. I have 600
elementary kids!

I am ready to abandon this wonderful project.
