Colorful Plate Spinners – Preschool


Children gain knowledge and interest in new fruits and vegetables through making fruit and vegetable spinners.

Need to Prepare


  • Paper plate
  • Photos of different healthy foods, fruits, and vegetables in a variety of colors for each child
  • Scissors
  • Glue

For the spinner, cut out pictures of vegetables. Draw a spiral on each paper plate (see illustration) and cut the paper plates along that line. (Older students can do the cutting themselves)
