1 For each Paper Spinner, trace 2 circles around the bottom of a large circular object onto construction paper.
2 Draw designs inside the circles with markers and colored pencils.
3 Cut out circles with scissors.
4 Place a circle onto a piece of scrap cardboard and trace.
5 Ask an adult to help cut out the cardboard disc.
6 Attach a circle to each side of the cardboard disc with glue stick.
7 Ask an adult to make two holes in the center of the cardboard disc, about 1/2" apart.
8 Cut a piece of string approximately 30” long.
9 Thread string ends through the holes in the cardboard disc. Tie together.
10 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!
