My 4 year old(yes, FOUR year old) asked for a spinner today! I am sure he saw it at school, but there is no way I would buy him one after the horrendous stories I heard. But that got me thinking into making a DIY version(This one is great and also this cube!) which led me to play around a little bit and I made this mini LEGO spinner, perfect as a pencil topper.
What you need(I do apologize for not knowing the right terms for the Lego pieces):
- A pencil(duh!)
- 3 round LEGO pieces(ours came out of THIS box)
- A round piece that will act as an axis
- A propeller piece(from a set with a helicopter)
- A small piece to keep the propeller in place
Attach the pencil to the LEGO. My pencil fit snugly(with a few twists) into the LEGO. You can add a bit of glue to secure it more, or simply use sticky glue for a temporary fit.
Add this pencil topper to THIS sensory kit, perfect for a sensory child!
