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.
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?
If you haven’t got a fidget spinner, how about trying this spin drawing machine?
