Crayola Spin and Spiral Art Station

(Crayola $19.99)

 

A clever combination of two classics—spiral art and spin art. You do the spiral art first and it’s pretty easy BUT don’t look at the image on the box. It shows two spiral forms together. That's wrong! You use only one at a time with this easier setup. Place one piece of paper in the holder and ONE disk on top. Put one of the six markers into a hole and keep your moving disk in constant contact with the outer edge of the platform. You’ll get an amazing geometric pattern. Switch marker colors and change the disc and add another geometric pattern, if you like. Next, take your completed spiral designed art and put it on the spin art platform. Press the plunger to make it spin and drip one or more of the inks on the paper. No batteries needed— this is kid powered and a satisfying way to experiment with mixing colors and creating geometric patterns. Another PLUS: You don't need to buy replacement paper.  The kit comes with 15 sturdy paper discs designed so you don’t have to worry about purchasing refills. The Spin & Spiral Art Station discs are thicker so you can trace/cut and do this on regular paper at home. You can also use paper plates. Marked 6 and up and that sounds right on the mark!
