If you're looking for another great upcycling idea for your fun file, don't miss out on these cool CD color spinners shared on Mama's Little Muse.
A fantastic way to have a quick and easy color theory lesson (and a whole lot of spinning fun!), these CD top lookalikes are made with leftover discs, bottle caps (for the top), ping pong balls or marbles (for the bottom), paint or markers, and a little bit of glue and scissor work. To get started, Mom Carolyn traced the CDs onto a sheet of paper and let her little one get busy on shading in two color slices for each spinner. Once they started spinning, Carolyn says that it was a great opportunity to talk about primary and secondary colors, as the fast movement would blur the two included colors together into one! Visit the rest of the full post for the complete walkthrough — and to see the colors they used, along with the colors that came from spinning!
