Teen Anime Club - Miyzaki Twister

I had a pin on my Young Adult / Teen Anime Manga Club pinterest board for for Anime Twister.  I made my own version for anime club tonight.  You can print the base for the spinner at the link below.  You will want to print the spinner on one page and then for each of the four characters you will want to print 6-8 pages for mimic the original Twister game.  If you expect a larger group you could print lots more.  I made the spinner by taping the printed spinner onto a piece of cardstock.  I cut a long triangle or arrow from another piece of card stock.  I didn't measure, I just eyeballed something that was long enough to reach the characters' faces. Using scissors I poked a hole through the arrow, the paper and the cardstock. I made the hole larger than the brad (brass fastener) that I was using to hold it all together.  I found the trick was to not bend the brad to tightly. If you fold the brad totally flat to the spinner, the arrow won't move.  It was a little flimsy but this way if I want to change the characters it would be easy enough to take the whole thing apart again.  

Because the original pin was for Hayao Miyazaki characters I used Calcifer from Howl's Moving, Jiji from Kiki's Delivery Service, a soot sprite from Spirited Away and Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro.  I discovered that many of my teens weweren't familiar with those characters or their movies.  It gave me a lot of ideas of things to show at upcoming Anime Manga Club meetings.
