kids spinn it at kenchanhalli

A fun exercise for kids to create new patterns and see it spin. It is simple.

The first exercise with the kids of kenchanhalli was interesting.
I made a template of the top in two views (side and top) and printed it out on an A4 sheet.

The kids used colors to fill in the template

Most kids used single color and they were not sure of how the
pattern would look when it is spun.

The circle is ready to to be cut out.

The circle is cut on the perforated guide line.

The cut circle is pressed with a board pin and the pointed
pin is used as a handle to spin the pin and the paper.

The paper top in motion.

Patterns created by the children.
