Paper Top

What's more fun then a top? The one you made! :)

To make these paper tops you will need some old newspapers and toothpicks.

1. Mark and cut the newspapers in even stripes. (keep the oppened part of the newspaper toward you)
2. Glue ends of stripes to each other so you get one long stripe (in a nice messy pile).
3. Glue the stripe to the toothpick and start wrapping. Make sure to tighten the paper every once in a while as much as you can. The tighter the better.
4. Once it is finished, you can adjust the shape to a cone if you wish.

Spin, spin, spin!

    I run Fun Family Crafts, a site similar in nature to Craftgawker and Spotlight, but different in that it's a library of craft tutorials geared only at kids. I would love it if you'd stop by and submit this to be featured! (I link to you, I don't post your tutorial on the site) Feel free to submit as many kid friendly craft tutorials as you like!

  5. Thank you all for the support, and thanks Amanda for the link - I will surely visit often for inspiration and share ideas of course. Cheers!:)
