DIY fidget spinner kids can make at home. Make a fidget spinner with LEGO building blocks.

DIY Fidget Spinner

Fidget spinners are all the rage right now with kids and even some adults. My kids just had to have one but since then the spinners have either gotten lost or stopped spinning well. They’ve been dipped in slime or gotten wet which caused their speed to slow. Buying new fidget spinners gets expensive so how about making your own? These are great tools for kids who constantly need to move and fidget while sitting. They can spin this diy LEGO fidget spinner while reading a book, watching a movie, or sitting at their desk listening to a teacher give a lesson.


LEGOs-See the image below for the LEGO block styles needed for this diy.

First, take the thin four bar and stick the rod through the middle hole.

Second, add one stud on each side of the rod.

Third, place a circle end cap on each end of the rod.

Finally, add the 2 larger triangular lego pieces on the top of your spinner and match the smaller sloped triangles on the bottom of the spinner.
