penny spinner

This mesmerising spinner teaches kids about geometry, physics and art.
Step 1
Use a round object (such as a dinner plate) to trace a circle onto a piece of poster board. Cut out the circle.
Step 2
Find the centre of the circle and divide the circle into quadrants, like a pie. Then, decorate each quadrant.
TIP: Penny spinners look best when the decorations are done with lots of bold colours. Check out these decoration ideas:
- Use markers to create deep, dark colours.
- Cut small scraps of construction paper and glue them into the quadrants.
- Use metallic or glitter glue to make swirls or designs in one.
Step 3
ADULT: Cut a slit that is just a bit smaller than a penny in the centre of your circle. Push the penny through the centre slit so that about half the penny sticks out on each side. Add a small dot of white school glue to hold the penny in place. Let dry.
Step 4
Set the spinner down and spin away!
