To make this craft, you’ll need:
2 sheets of white A4-size construction paper for printing
Places the cursor over each step to learn more details
Print the downloadable template on white construction paper and color in the different professions.
Cut out the two parts of the roulette with a pair of scissors. Don’t throw away the leftover paper just yet.
Join the two parts of the wheel together by gluing one side to the central strip of the other with a glue stick.
Paste the construction paper wheel onto the cardboard with the glue stick.
With an awl or ice-pick, carefully punch a hole in the center of the wooden popsicle stick or throat depressor.
Decorate one end of the stick with colored markers so it can serve as a pointer.
Place the popsicle stick so that the hole you punched lines up with the point at the center of the wheel. Push a ball-top pin through until it enters the cardboard and passes through to the underside.
Turn over the cardboard and fold down the point of the pin with a pair of pliers.
Cut out a 3cm square from the paper leftover from the template and tape it the folded-over pin tip to the cardboard so nobody will get accidently pricked.
Your roulette game is ready! Play “professions” with your family: twirl the rod and then act out the profession it points to. See if they can guess which profession you are performing. Happy Women’s Day!
