@Pappy8:  Lol, I’ll look around to see if I find something for you. Do you want that one specifically? I know most of the tutorials I’ve seen use a wooden dowel

http://www.ehow.com/how_8450929_make-fast-pinwheel.html  This site shows to use a straw or dowel, with a hole drilled or punched, and to use a pin through the center and into the dowel, which is then tied off with a bead to keep it from coming off.  Maybe that will work?

I made a ton of these pinweels. They spin very well.

For the sticks, I took two small dowels, taped the tops together with floral tape.

I put the pin through the pinwheel, then added two pearl beads, then poked the pin through the middle of the two dowels. I bent the pin down with a pair of plyers, Then I wrapped the entire length of the dowels in floral tape.

@Pappy8:  Not sure if this helps, but the Dollarama in Westmount Mall (St. Albert Trail, and 111 Ave) had some pinwheels when I was there last week (small ones, and larger ones)…  Not sure if they’re still there, but I wonder if they might be made of the plastic parts you’re looking for? Maybe they can pop apart, and you could just use the pieces with your pretty music sheets?
