Please do not link up educational reviews – thanks!   learn and link new button   Our art spinner broke in the middle of my kids doing their craft so I quickly grabbed 8 1/2 X 11 white paper and cut it in 1/2, grabbed food coloring and my salad spinner and set it down in front of my toddler and preschooler and showed them how to make spin art in the salad spinner.  Salad spin art collage  My kids went to town as they placed their paper in the spinner, dropped food coloring on the paper, closed the lid and pushed the spinner up and down. They were so excited to see their finished art work. salad spin art 1 I love this because there was hardly any mess to clean up plus they were so excited to push the salad spinner button and watch it spin as their artwork was being created!

  22. I learned how to do this recently at a workshop and have been meaning to try it with our little ones. Thanks for reminding me. The pictures your family made came out beautifully. I think that collection would look nice framed. Thanks for sharing on Artsy Play Wednesday.
