Fidget Spinners. Do you love them or hate them?
At this point when something new like this comes along I usually am ok with the kids getting on board and sitting back to see what creative ways my boys will come up with for applying their own twist to said trend. They usually don’t disappoint. And as much as some of their antics can drive me crazy… think bottle flipping… I’m usually one hundred percent in favor of anything that will keep them away from idle screen time and thinking out of the box.
They almost never use anything only as it’s intended anyway and in the case of fidget spinners I’ve been rather impressed.
My thirteen year old and five year old have been playing together making charts and graphs to see how long various spinners will spin. They have had friendly competitions to see who can keep their spinner spinning the longest. And then there’s their latest venture… Fidget Spinner Tricks…
Sorry make that INSANE Fidget Spinner Trick Shots…
We’ve been letting Mr. A try his hand at youtube videos and he’s put together this awesome compilation of creative and challenging ways to try spinning your fidget spinners. (along with a little filming help from his younger brother). I promise you, he did this all on his own with no help from me. I hope you will take a look! I love all the learning and creativity that goes into kids learning to make videos like this.
My personal favorite is The Marker Fidget Spinner Trick Shot. I know he would love it if you would stop by, watch the video and say hi! Let him know what your favorite trick was too! And of course if you try any of these with your own kids please do so at your own risk. I’ll warn you, the outtakes from the whole tennis racket trick got a little hairy. Yikes!
