Make Your Own Lego Fidget Spinner
Central New York parents and teachers are going crazy over fidget spinners. These seemingly innocent devices are popping up all over the place. But why should you have to buy something when your kids have every imaginable fidget device right in their Lego bin.
Fidget spinners were first created as a way to help students focus while giving their hands something effortless to do. Some schools have banned them while other teachers have embraced them as a tool just like any other - make the kids a part of the rule-making process and maybe the toys won't get out of hand. Whichever side of the debate you fall on, it doesn't look like they're going away anytime soon. I still wonder why anyone would need to buy this specific toy to find something to "fidget" with - we all do it a million times a day, with clicking pens, tapping on desks, and whatever is around.
This Lego Fidget Spinner was simple to make and just required a few pieces. The hardest part is going to be digging through your Lego bins to find the right ones.
The large and medium circle pieces need to have round centers. The small circle, the axle and yellow "collar" have a plus-sign center.
There are no ball bearings or fancy LED lights, but this Lego Fidget Spinner does exactly what they all do - provide something for your hands to do that doesn't require looking or thinking. So why not design your own fidget spinner right now?
