Penny Spinners

Hi I’m Kimbo from A girl and a glue gun! I have a super easy and fun kids craft for you today to bust those summer boredom blues! Penny spinners! AND you should have most of the supplies laying around the house! Penny Spinner Craft for kids! Awesome kid craft for the summer!Here are the supplies!   supplies for kids crafts

  • cardboard/posterboard
  • scissors
  • coloring supplies
  • penny

I used a lid to trace..but anything round would work! (about 5 inches wide!) I made a video to show you how fun and easy they are!




If you can’t watch the movie I will give you a basic rundown–trace a circle and cut out (make sure to use safety with scissors!) Then decorate! It’s so fun to see what the colors look like when they are spinning around!

color the circle

Add a little slit and slip in the penny (it needs to be nice and tight!)
