8 DIY Fidget Spinner Toys

Fidget spinners seem to be going absolutely crazy at the moment. We live in a rural area so normally when I hear about trends I think they won’t hit us quite so badly but this week there’s been fidget spinners starting to appear in my son’s classroom and I’ve heard several mums in the playground talking about them too! Whether you like a bit of an engineering challenge, don’t fancy buying a fidget spinner yourself or just fancy a craft that your kids will really get into (you know you’ll be the cool parent with this one!) DIY fidget spinner toys are a great idea. I’ve hunted out some great tutorials, both from blogs and youtube (because sometimes I know it helps to see what you’re doing!) so I’m sure they’ll be a fidget toy tutorial in this list that you’ll love. Some of these DIY fidget spinner tutorials are obviously way too hard for young kids (umm, check out the iphone one) but they do look amazing while others like the one by Red Ted Art are far more achievable.
