Salad spinner art


It's nice some times to go back over old photos and see what you got up to in the past.  This activity is still popular even a couple of years after we first did it.

All you need is an old salad spinner.  We got one from a second hand shop.  Best not to use mums from the kitchen.
Paper and paints.

 
I drew round the bowl onto an old cereal box to make a template.  With the template you can easily cut out several sheets of card at the same time.  We tried it with paper but it just folded up.
 
Put a piece of card in the spinner.  Then put blobs of paint on (the child can probably do this depending on their age).  Then put the lid on and spin that is all there is to it.
 
 
 
Matthew really liked doing it using glittery paint.
 
 
 
And I'm sure you can come up with some uses for the finished picture.  We turned these into Easter cards. 
 
Next time we do it though I fancy trying this Frisbee idea. by http://blog.melissaanddoug.com/
 

Doing this has reminded me to get this out again.
