Lottery wheels can be used to select numbers at random. Generally, people will select the numbers they want to play, then a wheel will be used to choose winning numbers. Lotteries can be used to give out cash prizes or other gifts and can be a fun party game, as well. Create your own lottery wheel using items found in your home.

  1. 1

    Lay a paper plate on a flat surface.

  2. 2

    Place a ruler in the centre of the plate and use a marker to draw a line on the plate up against the ruler.

  3. 3

    Use the ruler, marker and a compass to divide each half of the plate into five equal parts, with the centre line as a guide. You should have 10 parts when finished.

  4. 4

    Use the marker to number each section zero through nine, moving clockwise around the wheel.

  5. 5

    Poke a hole through the centre of the wheel using a pushpin and push the pin into a wall to attach the wheel. Do not push the pin into the wall too tightly -- doing so will prevent the wheel from spinning.

  6. 6

    Place push pins at the zero, four, five and nine positions on the wall around the wheel.

  7. 7

    Spin the wheel. Whichever numbers land at each pushpin will be those selected for the lottery.
