It spins beautifully :) The kids can spin it, too, with a bit of practice. 

A small spinner made from a toothpick and colored paper strips held together with glue.

Cut cardboard or printer paper in different colors into strips. Start winding them carefully around a toothpick, adding a little glue from time to time – it will make the paper easier to bend. When you’re done, cover the sides with glue so the rolled paper will not rotate around the axis. The spinner will be ready to play with as soon as the glue has dried.
