Salad Spinner Art ROCKS!!!! This was a blast and not messy at all! The girls would have kept doing it all day if I'd have let them! :)
Super simple. Get your salad spinner and some construction paper (I used card stock). Trace the bottom of the basket onto the paper and cut it out so that it will sit nicely in the bottom. Let the kids drip various color combos of tempera (washable) paint, put the lid on and let them spin to their hearts delight!!! My original plan was to talk about pastel colors and what that means. Then to let them mix the colors, but I was out of white. It would have been cute to cut the dried circle into egg shaped ovals for Easter. Oh, well. We talked about primary colors and centrifical force. FUN! You've gotta try this!!!
