In the past few months, parents and grandparents everywhere have been inundated with one request from their kids and grandkids: Can I have a fidget spinner?
Fidget spinners, which only cost a few dollars, are all the rage among school-aged kids. Even teens and adults have gotten in on the craze, buying these funky, colorful spinners.
Many people say that fidget spinners are helpful for both children and adults with anxiety and ADHD — and kids have become completely obsessed with them.
Fidget spinners typically have two or three wings, with a circular disc in the middle that allows the toy to spin on its axis.
The small, lightweight toys fit right in your pocket, and some of them even have lights, metallic coatings, and funky silicone parts.
Although you can find fidget spinners online, you can also make them yourself with a few simple supplies!
