Posted:Two white trash bags with soda bottles half full of water in them. Was at a friend's party one night and had nothing to spin so I made them up. It was actually rather cool because the trash bags were shaped in just a way that they looked somewhat like flags and made a nice plastic bag sound while spinning through the air.

Shopping bags full of food works well...and gets you some nice stares biggrin

I managed to get 2 chokers for dogs (big dogs) and attached glowsticks to them. That made for some nice spinning...and lots of cuts and bruises lol.

I tried to do a 3 beat with school bags, but it didn't work out to well ^.^'

I've always found shoe Poi to be very awkward ^.^' but that's just me.

Anything is spinable wink You just have to be creative enough. I remember pictures of Beanie Poi (beanie babies tied onto strings) not to long ago.
