I saw this on several blogs last year but we didn't have a salad spinner, when I was in the 3 coins shop (everything is ¥300 yen) the other day, I spotted one, so I thought we would give it ago.
Luckily, it was a rainy day Saturday and daddy-ebi was a at work, a perfect salad spinning art day.
What you need:
A salad spinner
food colouring (I used this instead of paint because I might want to use the spinner for food afterwards!)
paper plates or paper cut to fit the bottom of the spinner
This was a relatively clean painting activity, well it was until Ebi-kun knocked the blue food colour all over the floor!
Pop your paper in the spinner
Add drops of colour, we had a lot of fun experimenting, changing where we dropped paint to see how the design would change.
Put the lid on and S-P-I-N
taa-daaa beautiful spun art
string up and dangle from the ceiling (optional) :o)We finished painting for lunch, Ebi-kun is such a slow eater, I often catch up on my blog reading as he eats. Anyway, he had just finished when I was reading Julie's blog. Julie often joins the swaps and I consider her a bloggy friend, I was reading about her little boy. Eli, who currently very sick in hospital (in Hungary). Ebi-kun was asking me about the photos so I was explaining that Eli was very sick and had to stay in the hospital bed for a long time. Ebi-kun looked very worried about this and announced that we should send him some toys. He wanted to send him his robot that he had designed but I had to tell him that it wasn't very hygenic - robot got caught in the cross fire one night when Ebi-kun had a nose bleed and so he now sports a big blood stain. So, Ebi-kun decided to design another robot, he drew the design and picked out the colours and I sewed him up whilst Ebi-kun took his nap.
He is a Doctor Robot, we popped him in the post yesterday, hopefully doctor Robot can help Eli get better.
I will be sorting out the swap groups today, if you signed up, expect an email in the next day or so....
