Rainbow Spin Art Flowers

Begin by cutting card circles that will fit inside the bottom of the salad spinner. Put one circle into the salad spinner and squirt poster paint on top of it. We used red, yellow, green and blue paint for our flowers.

Secure the lid of the salad spinner and spin it as fast as you can. This bit is really fun and Daisy (aged 2) loved watching it spin around.

When you take the lid of the spinner you will see that the colours have spun across the card.  Each piece of spin art will be totally unique.

Remove the spin art from the salad spinner and leave it to dry.

Cut the pieces of spin art into flower shapes and decorate them. Daisy chose the biggest pom poms she could find and a selection of buttons.

Add a green craft stick to each flower as a stem.

Experiment with using different colour paints and try adding different collage material to your flowers. Adding glitter and sequins could be fun!
