Day and Night Spinning Card

Looking back on my elementary days, I used to watch Disney channel's Art Attack. This is one of my greatest memories of the old times Art Attack show.

This doesn't look like a professional artist's work, but it is a great idea to teach kids to play with their imagination.



  1. Get a piece of round cardboard. Fold it with one side smaller than the other. Cut the cardboard and keep the bigger side.
  2. Position the cut out piece onto the second round cardboard. Trace the middle edge. Then place it on the opposite side, trace again. You will then create a small horizontal space in the middle of the round cardboard.

  4. Mark the center of the pieces of cardboard.
  5. Start drawing your design on the first side with the half cardboard positioned on the opposite side.
  6. Do the same on the opposite side. Draw the same view on it and you can add a little more detail to create movement on the art.
  7. Color your work. On one side, day and the opposite will be night time.

  9. Choose a design for your half cardboard piece. Find a view that might not affect the day and night concept.
  10. Place half over the round card. Make a hole in the marked area.
  11. Carefully insert fastener. Secure the back portion.
  12. Spin the half cardboard to see the simple, but amazing effect.
