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.
