Cut 8 strips of paper. You can cut it from the long side of the paper. Each strip should be 2cm in width.
Cut 4 circles for attaching the paper strips. The circles displayed are 4cm in diameter.
Start by rubbing glue from a glue stick all over one of the circles. Arrange one end of the paper strips evenly around the circle. Keep adding glue as they overlap around the circle. Cover the top with another circle to secure them in place.
Do the same with another circle. This time bring the other ends of the paper strips up and attach them to the circle. Once they are all attached with glue, cover again with another circle to secure them.
Put the wooden skewer through the center of both circles of paper. You can poke the hole with a pin, then push the pointy end of the skewer up through the center of the paper spinner.
On the top circle, cover the top with hot glue to keep it from moving.
Reach the glue gun into the underside of that top circle and add some hot glue there, too. This will keep the whole top section from moving as the spinner toy spins.
The bottom hole will need to be stretched out just a little bit. Just move the skewer around in the hole to make it a little wider. This will allow it to spin freely.
Just roll the stick between both hands and watch it spin!
