We did a spin art project with the Toddler Art Group yesterday. Thanks to Dana for sending me the idea! It was a fun project for the kids. By the way, I'm going to post an interview with her next week about teaching art to preschoolers and about sewing and creating with her three children.
We placed a 6 inch paper plate at the bottom of a salad spinner and squeezed blobs of 1-3 different colors of tempera paint onto the plate. Here Vivi's squeezing red glitter paint onto her plate.
Then the kids spun the salad spinner...
And pulled out the finished spin art!
We used two different kinds of salad spinners. Here Henry's pushing the button on the top to spin this one.
Thanks to Bobbi for the photos!
