Spin 'n Paint

I found a toy for the boys that I used to have when I was a girl. I was so excited about it, because it was one of my favorites. You put a paper on a spinner. When you turn it on, the paper spins around and around very fast. Then you drop paint onto it, and watch the designs come to life. It is so much fun!

Saturday night we gathered around the dinner table and did some painting as a family. I'm not quite sure if the boys had more fun, or the parents, as you can see by this picture!

We used up almost all the paper that came with the machine, and made quite a collection of pretty cards. Don't be surprised if you get one in the mail from the boys. They are so proud of their creations. It was a lot of fun, and the boys have asked several times since then if we can do the painting thing again. So, we'll probably be painting tonight!

  1. I don't think I had that as a kid, but I remember doing it somewhere. Maybe a cousin had it. Such a neat craft for kids and adults too!
