Fidget spinners are all the rage right now, but you don’t have to buy one! We are going to show you how to make a fidget spinner with just a few supplies.

The best thing about this project is that your kids can customize it to make cool fidget spinners that no one else has!

How to Make a Fidget Spinner

Here’s what you need to make a fidget spinner:

Fidget Spinner Instructions

Cut two of the craft sticks in half — you’ll need three of the halved sticks.

Now it’s time to decorate the sticks. This is where your kids can get really creative to make the fidget spinners their own. They can paint the sticks, color on them, or cover them in duct tape like we did.

Tear off some duct tape and place the craft sticks onto the sticky side. Place another piece of duct tape over the other side of the craft sticks to cover them. Press around the edges to seal them in, then cut around them to release them from the duct tape.

Glue the craft sticks together to form a triangle. Place the skate bearing in the center and tighten the triangle until the bearing is held in place. Secure each joint with a clothespin while the glue hardens.

Turn your fidget spinner over and apply glue where the skate bearing meets each craft stick. Allow to harden.

Now, your fidget spinner will spin, but to make it go faster and longer, we’ll need to add some weight.

Glue washers onto each of the corners of the triangle. Allow glue to harden, and your fidget spinner is ready!

LAS Mini-Sock Potpourri II

This month is the second of the PotPourri mini-socks. I picked diagonal stitches, most of which I’ve been wanting to try. I’ve made samplers of stitches that look interesting to me since the mid-70’s. It’s a great way to try them out. The outline is above, click on the thumbnail to get a full-sized template. […]
