Hi! I’m kimbo from a girl and a glue gun and I’ve got a super fun craft for you to keep the kids entertained this summer, part of the Make and Takes summer series Get Out and Play!!!

fun spinners craft for kids to do this summer!Craft up a few really fun spinners–You spin them and they hum! It’s super fun and most things, you probably already have around the house!


Just right click and save to your computer if you want to use my circles…you could just decorate the cardboard.


And color–the more colorful, the more fun it is to see as it spins…
color in circles

Cut out circles.

cut out with scissors

Use this to trace on a cardboard box and cut out. Then glue on (one on each side!)

glue with elmer's glue

Poke two holes right in the center.

fun kids craft idea

Take a piece of rope about 28 inches long…I used a match to burn the ends so they wouldn’t unravel. Then run through the holes and tie a knot.

run rope through

Then you take a piece of rope in each hand with the circle in the middle and go in circles to get the rope twisted.

fun colorful spinners

Then you pull…relax…pull…relax. IF you do it right the spinners make a humming noise!!!!
