Spin Art: Valentine Edition


With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we have been making crafts and sharing love with our friends! We have been making spin art for years using a cheap salad spinner from the dollar store, but this year we tried a themed craft with heart paper to spin. I saw this cute craft on Meri Cherry’s Art Blog and couldn’t help but try it ourselves.

It’s super simple to do with just a salad spinner, paper (I found heavier weight paper to do better with the spinning), and paint. We’ve used whatever paint we have laying around, but I like thinner paint so it really spins well. You can definitely see the difference in our results in the images below.

Do you have any questions? We love process art that lets the kids be in control with little supervision.

Happy crafting,
