The 3rd and 5th grade students made origami fidget spinners this week. This is the video tutorial on how to fold the 5th grade spinner (we used 5 x 5 in paper). Once the star was assembled, we glued the ends to make sure everything stayed together. This tutorial shows how to turn it into a spinner. Because we used white paper, we stopped to decorate with colored sharpie before moving onto this step.
This is the video tutorial on how to make the 3rd grade spinner (we used 6 x 6 in paper). In both versions, we hot glued pieces of art foam to the ends of the toothpicks as the bearing.
