A wooden wheel with a 1m diameter attached on 2 ballbearings pressed in the triangular frame.
The 2 feet are foldable so it would fit neatly in a car. The pointer is made out of an old hack saw blade with a piece of leather taped on, so it wouldn’t be so noisy when it touches the nails during use.

Are you going to put anything the wheel?
Perhaps a ”Wheel of Fortune”?

I made this for my niece, she works with 10 year olds. and the circle is going to be divided in 12 pieces each painted in another color.
There is also a box she bought with 12 drawers, each drawer with the same color as one piece. so the 10 y/o have to turn the wheel and whichever color it stops, they have to open the same colored drawer which has an instruction in it.
Sort of a fun game

Looks like it will withstand 10 years olds!

Did you follow any plans? I have been requested to make one sometime in the near future.
