Boredom Buster DIY Wheel Spinner
Ideal for preschool through elementary-aged children, this boredom-busting spin and build activity provides hours of fun!
The 9-page PDF printable includes the following:
- Cover page
- Instructions page
- Category Cards
- Pre-filled category spinners
- Blank category spinners
We recommend printing on cardstock paper.
There are 6 category cards and 6 corresponding DIY wheel spinners included in this printable PDF. The pre-filled category cards and activity spinners are Nature, Food, Technology, and Random Ideas.
After kids select a category and spin for an activity, they then choose to build the project with playdough, blocks/Legos, or can opt to use drawing materials like crayons, colored pencils, or even paint.
For example, if a child chooses the Technology category card and their spinner lands on “your own invention” they can opt to draw their own invention, or build it with whatever materials they have on hand. If they selected the Nature category, they may land on “found at the beach” and can build/draw a crab, shark, or another idea they come up with.
We left 2 category cards blank, and the corresponding wheel spinners so you and your child can come up with even more activities to keep them entertained.
This boredom buster DIY wheel spinner is SO much fun! It’s great for homeschooling, classroom centers, and parents who want to encourage imaginative play, build fine motor skills, and inspire creativity. Get it here!
This spin-and-build activity is a lifesaver on weekends, bad weather days, vacations, summer breaks, and more! We know your kids will LOVE completing the many tasks included with this printable project!
