How do you make rainbow spin art?

In order to try spin art, you need to gather up a few materials.

For this rainbow spin art activity we used:

  • salad spinner
  • red, blue, and yellow Colorations washable tempera paint
  • white cardstock
  • scissors

Instructions for rainbow spin art:

1) Put a small piece of paper flat in the salad spinner. ** We use cardstock cut outs and/or coffee filters depending on the day. I’m not a coffee drinker, but I alway keep a stash of coffee filters around for crafting. They are great for spin art and sun catcher crafts, etc! .

2) Squirt or drop some watered down washable paint onto the paper that is in the salad spinner. ** We like to use liquid water colors when we have some, because they are super easy to squirt. But these Washable Tempera Colorations bottles are nice and liquidy too.
