Fidget spinners — they’re all the craze right now! But guess what?
People have been making fidget spinners for years! And if you don’t want to wait until a new stock arrives at your fave store, you can enjoy making some too!
Decades ago (wow, I’m feeling crazy old) my elementary-aged friends and I were constantly rigging up super-cool, paper spinners. In fact, some of my future entrepreneur friends started selling them! Pretty brilliant, eh?!
The more snazzy the color schemes the pricier the fidget spinner. Psst! This was before Pinterest, so learning how to make them wasn’t the easiest knowledge to undercover. And once you had a bonafide fidget spinner in your hands you were one of the “cool kids.” Oh, the life, right?! You also had to have a package of Pez too…just sayin’!
But the secret is finally out — thanks to social media and the internet!
We can finally duplicate what those paper genius kids made in elementary school and share our brilliant finds with our kids.
