Color Wheel Spinner
May 27th, 2012 by Craftylocks

A simple activity that children find fascinating.

We had lots of fun experimenting with this. I prepared the basic shape and divided it up into sections for the children to color and then they experimented with different color combinations, including having two circles on one wheel.

This is also a great paper craft to help teach color mixing, our children were correctly predicting the colors they were going to create. But for a child not quite sure what to expect it would be exciting to have the blue and yellow color wheel turn green when they spin it.

There are two ways to spin these. One is with a short pencil and spin it on a table like a spinning top, but the children found it easier to have the color wheel on a longer pencil and then roll the pencil back and forth between two hands.
