For our 28th meetup with the The Children's Art Group, I thought it would be fun for the kids to try Salad Spinner Art. I had done this before with my son, so I knew the kids would have a lot of fun with this, and it's a bit less messy than some of our recent past art projects.
I first wanted to see if anyone had a salad spinner, which no one did. So a month prior to the meetup, I scoured my local Goodwill thrift store and found 3 for a few dollars a piece. The figured the kids could take turns using them, and that ended up working out perfectly! So I provided the salad spinners and paper (which I cut in circles to fit the spinners prior to the meetup)
and I asked everyone else attending to bring some washable paint.
We had kids ranging from 3-12 and they all enjoyed this activity!
The idea is to simply lay a piece of paper at the bottom of the salad spinner,
dab some paint/s in as you'd like, and then SPIN!
beautiful, fun, and simple!
A big hit with the group!
After the meetup was over, I let a few people take the salad spinners home, providing they bring them back for our meetup in the spring...Salad Spinner Tie Dye T-shirts!
