How to roll a windmill

A smoke-cooling chamber and multiple joint holder, the Windmill is designed to get you spinning in the breeze. Although it's tricky to make, the holder can be used time and time again.

Roll a wide cone from a 10cm x 10cm piece of cardboard.

Seal the end of the windmill with the excess paper, using thread or tape. To use the windmill, roll the numbers of your choice around the protruding roaches and enjoy a four-way smoke of quixotic proportions.
