How to Make our Printable Number Spinners
What you need:
- our printable number spinners (available in our members area)
- heavier print paper (white and color)
- brads (or something similar)
Optional: coloring supplies if you will print the black and white version
Step by Step Tutorial
Print out the templates on heavier print paper.
If you are printing the black and white version, or color version with black and white tops it’s best to print the tops on colored cardstock to make them look nicer.
Cut out the top and bottom part of the spinner.
Punch a hole through the middle (top and bottom part) – we used a skewer.
Insert brad through the holes on both top and bottom part.
Secure the brad by spreading the brad legs. If you don’t want the legs sticking out you can cover them with a bit of tape.
Spin and uncover different ways of writing down and showing numbers.
