Spinning top

1. Download the spinning top template available as a pdf file and print it out for your child.

2. Now your child can cut out the circle and colour it any way he or she likes.

3. Take a cutter (on an appropriate surface) and perform three cuts at the circle centre to obtain a hole.

4. Put a pencil through the hole in the circle and get going

Now turn the spinning top on a large sheet of paper. Each time it stops turning, it will become unstable and fall to one side, showing a curved line. Your child can try to copy such a line by drawing it on a piece of paper, in the air or in the sand by means of a stick…

Enjoy yourselves!
