Salad Spinner Paint Art Activity
Salad Spinner Paint Art:
I had seen the idea on Pinterest and had been wanting to give it a try. We finally did, and it was so much fun!
• Paper Plates • Salad Spinner • Paint
To prep this activity, I cut out the centers of a handful of paper plates – but any thick paper or cardstock type material would work well, too!
My kids were so excited when I told them we were going to
put paint on the plates, drop them down in the salad spinner, and SPIN, SPIN, SPIN
to create fun designs with our paint.
After each kiddo had taken a turn, Daddy showed them how they could
use a toothpick
to create a bit of a design in the paint BEFORE placing their plate in the salad spinner.
Using the toothpick to thin out blobs of paint seemed to be a great technique to use with this activity.
Then we used some of our extra supplies to paint leaves, acorns, and a few other items we had found on a recent Nature Walk.
We might even toss wooden or clay ornaments down in the salad spinner and “paint” them using this fun idea!
