CIY Staff Tips:
- You can trace any large circular object you have available; we used an empty coffee tin.
- Try designing your spinner with other art tools like Crayola Crayons or Crayola Washable Paint!
For each Paper Spinner, trace 2 circles around the bottom of a large circular object onto construction paper.
Draw designs inside the circles with markers and coloured pencils.
Cut out circles with scissors.
Place a circle onto a piece of scrap cardboard and trace.
Ask an adult to help cut out the cardboard disc.
Attach a circle to each side of the cardboard disc with glue stick.
Ask an adult to make two holes in the center of the cardboard disc, about 1/2" apart.
Cut a piece of string approximately 30” long.
Thread string ends through the holes in the cardboard disc. Tie together.
Center the disc on the string. Hold the ends and “flip” the disc repeatedly (like a jump rope) to wind up the spinner. Quickly stretch the string to watch it swirl and twirl!
