How My Son Made His Lego Fidget Spinner #Lego

If you are a parent or a teacher I am sure you have heard all about the latest craze of the fidget spinners.  As a parent to a son who often is antsy I think it’s a good idea for them to have these to keep themselves busy but at the appropriate time. As a homeschool mom I do not mind if my son plays with his during certain times during our schooling but I can see how they can be a distraction to others and even himself! When I showed my nine year old son a fidget spinner that came up on my Facebook news feed made out of Lego’s he instantly grabbed his Lego bin and sat down and went to work.

He liked the one he saw on-line but he decided he was going to make his own version. One that would do a few extra things to play with.  Not only would he be able to spin it in his hands like a regular fidget spinner but he could spin it on hard surfaced due to the bottom piece he added for it to spin like a top and then there is taking it apart and putting it back together like a puzzle which he has done several times!

My son asked if he could do a video tutorial on how he made his Lego fidget spinner so other boys and girls could make one of their own, so here it is! 

If you have any questions for him please comment below and we will get back with you!

    Oh how cool! My kids have 5 or 6 each, but have never tried making one from Legos. We have all these pieces, so maybe we will give it a try.

  2. Oh, that is so cool! Your son is such a creative little smarty pants. I love it!

  3. This is awesome! How creative is your son that he came up with the idea for making his own fidget spinner? I have been wanting to get a fidget spinner for myself, but now I’m wondering if I can’t craft my own somehow!

  4. My son just did this yesterday for the first time! I’m gonna show him this one because I think he would love this.

  5. This is why I love LEGOS. Sure, the kits are fun to make, but it’s the creativity that comes afterward that’s so much fun!

    This is really cool! I think that you can really make anything you put your mind to with Legos.

    My kids just got their first fidget spinners yesterday. I did not want them to have them but my mom bought them one. I think your son is very intelligent to use his mind and skill to make one.

  8. Wow, great work! This came together really well and it was a really nice reminder of what Legos can do!

    This is such a cool idea I will have to show this to my Son. He loves to make his own things.

  10. That is really awesome! So many kids now days have these. My niece just got one not long ago. I love that this one is made from legos!

  11. How fun and such a creative idea. I’ll have to make these with the kids, we have plenty of LEGO’s.

  12. That’s pretty cool! If you can’t afford a real spinner, make one with Legos! I think that makes for some real ingenuity to come up with something like that.

  13. One of the things I love about Legos is how it creates imaginative play. Your son’s fidget spinner is very cool!

  14. This is really cool! I’ve seen DIY fidget spinners but this is the first that was made from Lego! I’ll show this to my son! I’m sure he would love to try it too!

  15. That is awesome that he made his own. Fidget spinners are really popular.
