Ah spin art. You are so fun.
Have you tried this?
You need a salad spinner, paper plates (ours were too big so Maia cut them down) or paper cut to fit, and paint. We tried something called Activity Paints this time, which worked great, but have used tempera paints in the past. And BioColors work well for spin painting, too.
Spin Painting with a Salad Spinner
Step 1. Add paint
Use a spoon to scoop a few different paint colors onto the paper plate.
Step 2. Place lid on and spin
Put the lid on the salad spinner and begin to spin!
Step 3. Remove the lid
The suspense and anticipation is so great!
Step 4. Admire
Each spin painting is beautiful and unique!
Continue to repeat this process and try various color combinations for different results.
What to do with all your lovely spin paintings? Make a mobile!
