Flower craft for preschoolers

Close the lid and allow your child to spin away. Spinning less will leave more concentration of original colors and spinnign more will blend the colors more.

Feel free to allow it to slow down and take a peak to see if you’ve reached the colors you want.

Spin Art Tips and tricks for kids crafts

Flower art and craft for preschool

Here are a couple Spin Art Tips:

  • Lots of small blobs in the middle or drizzling it across the paper works best.
  • Don’t put too much paint or you’ll just end up with a big ball of paper and lots of wasted paint at the bottom.
  • You don’t want to spin too long or too fast or the colors completely blend. You want to do it 5-9 times slowly to create a beautiful mix of colors.
  • Don’t use your good salad spinner! Use one you find at a garage sale, your pitching, or you find at a dollar store.

Coffee Filter Salad Spinner Craft for Kids is fun to make and so beautiful too.
