There are special toys for making spin art, or you could even use a salad spinner, but it turns out that a paper plate, paper, and paint are all you need. We first tried this activity nearly three years ago when my son was only 2.5 years old – so it works well for a range of ages. He loved it as much now as he did back then!
Flip the plate over onto some paper, and twist the plate around. The plates don’t have to spin all the way around – just a swivel action back and forth will create some interesting prints.
Then peel off the plate!
The twisting makes the paint merge in a really interesting way. We just had to do more!
