How to Spin a Pencil Around Your Thumb

Have you ever watched somebody in class, or at the office skillfully twirl a pencil around his or her thumb and wondered how that person did it? Have you tried to do it on your own and found that it's not as easy as it looks? By following these steps and practicing - a lot - you can amaze curious onlookers with your brilliant pencil spinning, too!
  • Hold the pencil between your index, middle finger, and thumb. 
  • Simultaneously fold your middle finger in (at the joint closest to your hand) and extend your index finger. 
  • Catch the pencil after it wraps around your thumb and hits your middle finger, by moving your index finger back to its original position.

  • Practice this by holding the pencil in your non-dominant hand and guiding it around, so that you get a feel for how it should move  
p/s*practice it well....okay
