Spinning Retro Toy Activity

Posted by michelle maher on

A little toy from the past that is fun, fast and addictive. A classic that has been around for centuries but also explores some cool physics concepts. 

This fun, EASY-TO-MAKE machine can be constructed with some common household items such as paper, card and string. An excellent STEAM activity suitable for all ages. A huge hit here, we are giving it a big thumbs up.
