Swirl n’ Spin Art Fun
My recent acquisition of a Melissa & Doug Swirl ‘n Spin Art played a big role in our weekend fun. Hiding from the relentless rain we stayed inside and ‘kept busy’ with everything except laundry!!!.
I can’t tell you how much Molly enjoyed this, seeing her paint drops, blobs, stripes and swishes take on a life of their own when she pulled the little side lever and the page started spinning. No two pieces of paper were alike, her bright little eyes and mouth would open with an ‘ooooh’ everytime the spinning stopped and she saw the finished design.
It’s such a clever bit of kit, no batteries, suction cups on the base keep it locked in position on the table and off the walls :) and it is a cinch to clean after each art attack – two minutes under the kitchen tap with some washup liquid and it’s ready to go again…
We’re off now to dream up crafts and activities to make with our spin art….. stay tuned :)
