INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLE BANNER SPIN ART:Next, cut out your apple shape and then put it in the salad spinner.After that, squirt a bunch of paint into your salad spinner on top of your apple shape. We always use A LOT of paint, because the kids love it. This week we talked about different apples that we like and then we used those colors for our painting (reds, yellows, greens). The kids especially liked the sparkly colored paint.Once you’ve squeezed out a lot of paint, put the top on the salad spinner and start spinning!!Spin art is a great way to teach kids about colors and color mixing. We do a lot of predicting about how colors will look and what colors will do when they are mixed. We also practice color recognition as we use paintAdmire your beautiful apple creation once you are done and then set it aside to dry while you make another one!
