Last week in Room 1 and Room 1 Extension we made our own spinning tops with toothpicks and bottle tops. This was a great activity following our Pataka visit where we had an opportunity to play with wooden spinning tops from the past.
First, we used a hammer and nail to make a hole in the bottle top.
After we made the hole, we stuck a toothpick through.
Next, we used match sticks to carefully decorate our spinning tops with paint.
