We’re super excited to share our latest activity with you. Today we’re sharing how we quickly made a fidget spinner from Wikki Stix (you know, those awesome waxy yarn strings).

What You’ll Need

What to Do

Begin by degreasing your ball bearings. See our easy DIY here. Next, wrap one Wikki Stix around each bearing.

Then, press each of the bearings to each other, shaping them into a triangle (like the classic fidget spinner shape).

Next, add an outside border of Wiki Stix around the perimeter of the fidget spinner. This will help to hold everything together.
