Apple Spin Art
Tempera paint (We used red, green, and yellow.)
We cut our paper into apple shapes that would fit in our salad spinner. We then filled our plastic bottles with paint.
We showed the children each step and stood by in case they needed help.
Step 1: Place the paper in the spinner basket.
Step 2: Squirt paint onto the paper. (Note: You will want to be close by to show them when to stop, or they will want to squeeze all of the paint out. Trust me on this.)
Step 5: Remove the paper.
