Easy Fidget Spinner Art

Like most children, my 3 big ones love their fidget spinners, which led us to wondering what else we could do with them. First we have this easy art activity.


Fidget spinner

Paper or card

Felt tip pens



Draw around your fidget spinner and cut out a disc to fit on the top like the picture below.

Spin the spinner and gently press a felt tip pen on the paper so it draws as the spinner spins.


Things to think about

What happens as the spinner slows down?

Does it matter how fast the fidget spinner spins or how hard you press with the pen?
