    • sandpaper
    • 1" painter's tape
    • craft paintbrushes
    • electric drill
    • seashells
    • beads
    • E6000 Glue
    • bolts and washers
    • Skateboard Bearing
    • Kids Craft Wood Pieces



    Glue the bearing to the project prior to painting. This will make it easier for kids to paint the project.

    1. Parents: use a 3/4 inch drill to cut the center out of wood pieces. Sand the inside of the circle to get a smooth and correct size for the bearing to slide into. Using the E600, glue on the outside of the bearing, securing the wood cutout to it.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Another option is to use wooden sticks and foam. Cut your sticks to a size that will be able to spin in between your child's thumb and first fingers once attached to the bearing. Trace the bearing on craft foam and cutout leaving a 1/4 in edge around.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Slide the bearing threw the center of one foam piece and layout your wooden sticks. Apply glue to wood, foam and the bearing on the outside. Making sure to keep glue out of the face of the bearing. Take your second foam cutout and place over the top and push the bearing threw the center sandwiching the sticks and bearing between. Allow time to dry.

    7. A fidget spinner will not spin without a little weight added. Many items can be used. For the flower I applied bolts I had laying around. You can also use pennies if you have them. Try to place in the same spot from the one directly across from the other.

    9. After the glue has dried place painters tape over the bearing so paint does not get into the center. Using fun and bright colors apply paint! For the Anchor use Americana Multi-Surface Satin Turquoise Waters. and for the shell use Americana Multi-Surface Satin Flamingo.
