Kids' Project: How To Make Eraser Blades

My eldest had been in the beyblade craze since 5. I always thought it had long been over until now. 

It is super easy to make and very fun. You could use the spinners to challenge each other and they are easy to bring along. 

These eraser blades are also sturdy and last a while! 

You will need only:
An Eraser
A Stapler

Using the pictures below as assistance (they show the front and back of the eraser blades), use the stapler to push the staplers into the eraser.
You could design any sort of eraser blades and see if yours could outmatch your opponent's. The one shown is the easiest to make. To play, hold your eraser blade at the sides with both your hands and spin your hands in opposite direction. 
Go ahead and enjoy this new game!

And have a great day!

This is a video of how you could spin your eraser blade. Note its spinning power given only 3 simple staplers. More could be done to observe the difference in strength.

Have fun with yours!
