Rocket boy has been on at me for ages to get him a fidget spinner. Lots of the children in his class have them, some more than one. But I’m a bit wary of them as I’ve seen horror stories online about them falling apart, or children getting their fingers stuck in the holes. So I haven’t got him one. Then the other day we were messing about with Lego and I remembered seeing pictures of a Lego spinner made by someone (I think it was this post I had seen) and I decided to give it a try. Ours didn’t work out exactly the same as we didn’t have quite the same pieces as they used.
One benefit of having multiple lego helicopters is that they come with a good piece for going in the middle of a spinner! I think that they came out quite well, and starry girl insisted I made one (smaller) for her too. So now we have joined the club of spinners. My husband thinks they are even more pointless than yo-yos. So he’s not going to get one…me on the other hand, I haven’t quite decided!
