CDs are becoming an old technology especially with the boom of online streaming and Smart TV's. These CDs used to be my precious collection of music and movies years ago before smart phones and tablets came into existence. And now many of them lay untouched in the cupboards.
But, today I am going to put some good use of my old CDs making it as an ideal base for Mad Stuff with Rob's CD spinner.
How To Make CD Spinners DIY Craft For Children (Earth Day Special)
|Tried to make one with Berry|
- Place a bottle cap on top of the old CD and paste it exactly in the center hole.
- Then, add a marble on the other side of the CD and glue it inside the bottle cap.This will help the CD to spin.
- Encourage kids to design on the bottle cap and the CD. You can choose spirals, zigzags, dots, stripes and more using bright sketch or paint. Using spirals will look cool as the CD spins creating a sort of whirlpool pattern.
- Now, make a game out of it and see whose design creates amazing patterns and whose CD spins fast.
