Spinning Pictures

You are at home and feel like doing something? Your fingers are already tingling? Then we have a few ideas for you. Sometimes you might need the help of your parents or bigger siblings.

What you need:

  • Salad spinner
  • Color
  • Brushes
  • Paper
  • Scissors

Here we go:

Today we borrow the salad spinner from the kitchen and get the colors going! Open the salad spinner and put a sheet of paper on the bottom of the basket. You can also cut it in a circle or square beforehand to make it fit better. Then drip colors onto your sheet. If you dilute your colors a little bit with water, the effect will be much nicer. Then put the lid on and quickly twist, twist, twist. By turning it, not only the drops of water from the salad are thrown outwards, but also your colors. Now open the lid again and AH! there it is, your first spinning picture. Not colorful enough? Just drip over it again and twist. Too much fun? Just put another sheet in, add some color and WOW!
