A gyroscope is a simple toy that can be made from a variety of materials. If you give it a bit of power in the beginning, the gyroscope can turn for a long time on a smooth surface.
As detailed below, we can make a gyroscope out of paper. It's like a cute little flower basket with a sharp bottom and a structure at the top that allows the fingers to pinch.
Simple and fun origami tutorial, which only take 3 sheets of paper to make. Fold the parts of the top separately and then put them together. Although many steps, but even preschool children can try!
