::: cd spinners
We’ve used CD’s as garden art before but are always on the look out for new ways to use them.
The children took a CD, a ball of Blu Tak and a marble. They placed the Blu Tak over the hole in the CD and pushed the marble into it which in turn pushed a blob of the Blu Tak through to the other side.
On the other side they pressed a small bottle cap into the bulging Blu Tak.
They decorated the CD’s with textas or cut out paper …
then popped them onto a flat surface and spun them.
They were really easy for the children to spin as the bottle cap was a good size for their fingers to get a good grip on …
and the CD ‘s were so nicely balanced.
They looked beautiful when they spun, not only because of the children’s decorations, but also the way the light caught the CD’s, producing almost holographic rainbow colours.
