spin top, spin!
a sharpened pencil stub
a nail to punch a hole
Draw a circle on cardboard. You might use the rim of a drinking glass for a pattern. Cut the circle out.
Decorate the circle with bright crayon designs.
Punch a hole in the center of the circle with a nail.
Stick the sharpened pencil stub through the hole just as far as it shows in the Picture. Now you have a top that will spin.
