These Recycled CD Spinners appeal to both boys and girls. That’s unusual for most crafts. So, when there’s an idea for something that works for both, I am sure to use it when my grandchildren are around. Not only is it a craft, but it’s fun to have contests on whose spinner lasts the longest! It, also, fits in for any season as it can be decorated in any way! It’s a great way to reuse and recycle a CD and bottle-top into something fun! The only extra material needed is a marble.
1 recycled cap from a bottle
Hot glue gun
Permanent Markers – Watercolor markers do not work!
Stickers, etc. optional
First, decorate the CD with permanent markers or stickers, etc.
Next, glue marble into the CD hole on the bottom side. Use a glue gun.
Finally, glue cap on the center of the CD decorated side. (I used a milk bottle cap, but any cap will work.)
Let dry and SPIN!
Notice how the 1/2 red and 1/2 blue circle turns purple while spinning. The black is invisible! This CD Spinner is a great color wheel project, too.
You probably already have these materials on hand. Try it! Kids love this craft!
