To make a spinner, you will need:
Print off this sheet of the spinner and pointer, cut them out and stick them onto card. (Alternatively, you could use the image below as a model, and draw your own version straight onto the card.)
Attach the pointer to the centre with the fastener - don't fasten it too tight or the pointer won't spin.
Another option is to use a paper clip in the centre of the spinner rather than having a pointer. Put a pencil point inside the clip and on the centre dot. Hold the pencil firmly and spin the paper clip.
