Go to the doctor's office and get 2 tounge depressers, then add 2 coins at each end, finally put a toothpick through both tounge depressers and ta da a spinner

Although I'm actually not sure of your measurements for the main portion of the spinner, from your pictures, it's 2 cm by 9 cm is this correct?
