Leawood pupils celebrate peace with pinwheels

As the wind blew across the lawn of Leawood Elementary, tiny wheels started spinning. Even while in motion, it was easy to make out peace signs, hearts, stars, musical notes, rainbows and letters colored onto their vanes.

More than 400 of these bright, dazzling pinwheels had been planted on the lawn, all in the name of peace.

Leawood students celebrated International Peace Day on Wednesday, Sept. 21, by creating and sharing their pinwheels.
