Spin Art is such a simple way to create interesting art effects and the kids love it. Yes, you can purchase your own Spin Art Machine but there is a much simpler way to create this art. Here we use it to create some Pumpkins or Jack-o-lanterns perfect for toddlers and preschoolers to make for Halloween. We've also used it to create some Fish as part of our Storybook Summer Series.

How to make Spin Art Pumpkins
To fit in our Salad Spinner I cut the paper plates a little so they fit in the bottom of the cage. J and then poured paint onto the plate and placed the lid on top.
J loves turning things, rotating and anything that spins so this was perfect for him. He had so much fun turning the dial to spin the paint out on the plate. We made LOADS of these and put them aside to dry.
As there were some spaces left by the spin art T and J spent time colouring in the gaps using wax crayons and pencil crayons. I then cut out some random spaces from some of our black gummed paper (if you don't have gummed paper than construction paper glued in place would work as well) and J and T glued on faces to the pumpkins.
