This homemade spinner toy is great for a colour hunt! Just spin the arrow and find something that matches the colour.

I made this colour hunt spinner by adapting an image I found on Clker. I printed it out onto white card then glued it onto some thicker card for stability. I used my trusty craft knife to cut it out from the thick card.
I got very lucky and happened to find some wooden arrows in the scrapbooking embellishments section of my craft store. All I had to do was ask my husband very nicely to drill a hole in the middle of it! If you can’t find any in your store then you could try these thicker arrows or even these fun wavy arrows!
I had planned to use a long brad (paper fastener) to secure the arrow to the spinner board but my husband provided me with a cotter pin which worked really well.
I showed F and he immediately loved it! He enjoyed spinning the arrow and then we would find something in the room that matched the colour.
It wasn’t long before we moved to the next room with the spinner so that he could incorporate his trains and other items.
We also took it in the car with us on a journey and when we were next out in the stroller!
