paper, trace around the top of the paper towel tube. Then draw another circle around it, about 1 ½
inches larger. Cut spokes from the outside edge to the inner circle. Fold spokes down around the top of

Scrunch the aluminum, then place inside of tube on the open end. Pour a couple of handfuls of
beans into the tube. Then seal the bottom end with a circle the same as the top. Decorate if you
wish. Paint or color with crayons or markers. Tie twine around the top and put beads and feathers
