(*articles may contain affiliate links*) Hey, guys. It’s Arianna. Today I’m going to offer up some ideas on what to do when mom won’t buy you a fidget spinner. Trust me, I know from experience. My mom won’t put one in our Amazon shopping cart. The struggle is real.
“A lot of people have them,” Evan says. “Some of the fidget spinners spin for a long, long time and that’s why I want one.”
If you’re like us, and don’t have a fidget spinner, you will have to come up with something else to do instead. Here are my suggestions!
What to Do When Mom Won’t Buy You a Fidget Spinner
Balls. You can use them like they are a fidget spinner. So like you twist it on the carpet and you can throw it up and down. It kind of looks like it when it twirls around, especially if it is different colors like a baseball or softball. If it’s just like a plain color like red, whenever you throw it, it looks like a fidget spinner that is one color.
Help put away the groceries. It will keep your mind off spending money on toys and remind you that mom and dad just spent money to fill your hungry tummy!
Make a fake computer. You can fold a piece of paper in half and draw on it so it looks like mom’s laptop and pretend to blog along beside her.
Play with your brother and sisters. You can draw pictures with them, fix their guitar, play monkey in the middle, or watch some Sesame Street.
Clean your room. Who knows. You might find something else really cool that you forgot about and you can play with that instead.
Not beg and complain. Fidget spinners are a fad! Soon enough, you will find something else to make you happy. Don’t make mom feel like she is messing up the mom thing by not buying everything you want. Give her a hug and be good!
If you don’t know about fidget spinners, here are some facts:
- They are two or three sided and can have a color on each side.
- You can spin it with your thumb or fingers, or even spin it on your head.
- You can use them to relieve stress and help you pay attention.
If you have a cool mom, she can head over to Amazon and get you one like this galaxy fidget spinner that I really, really, really want (sorry for begging, Mom!). Maybe if you do some chores, you’ll end up with a surprise!
