This week was Orange and Black. Turbo loves the salad spinner. It's on a shelf where he can reach since he plays with it often. Last week Mommies Wise Little Bookworm used a salad spinner to make their art. As soon as I saw it - I knew Turbo would be thrilled. Understatement! He had such a great time.
I love the way these turned out. We're going to start adding his art to a wall in his room. I haven't put anything up on this wall yet and these are perfect!!
Anyone have a cute idea on how to hang them??
Put a plate in the spinner, squeeze paint
Spin! - his favorite part! He took great joy in spinning as fast as possible and peeking in the top holes to see the colors SWIRL!
He asked for more colors so we pulled out red and blue also. We'll be using this technique a lot! I think you can teach layering, color blending and more through this. Who knew a salad spinner is a teaching toy?!?
I love them! Next time, I'll consider cutting some construction paper to fit the spinner. It will be nice to have a background color on some of them. I will absolutely have Turbo use an eye-dropper to place the paint. It will give him a lot more control over paint location and will help reduce waste a bit.
