Paper Plate Spinners

This week a couple of children created a spinner to play with others. We used already made templates with different actions to stick on paper plates and put them together using paper binders. The children had fun spinning and seeing what action they had to do.

The older children were able to complete the activity by themselves as they had the fine and gross motor skills. At first we made an arrow to attach to the spinner, but because it was made of paper and was not sturdy enough to spin, we altered the "spinner" to a second plate with a cut out. Sticky tape was also put near the paper binders to allow less friction and making the spinner easier to play with.
