spin art

it looks like it is going to rain on dahlia's birthday party so miles decided to make a giant spin art box for the kids to create spin art paintings. he has been wanting to do this for a while now. we bought a spin art set from michaels over a year ago and it can only take paper that is 4" by 4". the kids love it but we are constantly having to cut more paper. this got to be a bit time consuming.

miles wanted to make one that was big enough to hold a 8.5" by 11" size paper. he found a very old fan in the garage that we don't use any more and decided to create his own spin art machine. he bought some inexpensive particle board from home depot and went to work.

the spin art machine is now done and i am very impressed. it doesn't have that beautiful finished look but it works great. he even used a toggle switch to control the speed. i went to michaels today to buy washable paint and squeeze tubes so the kids can easily add the paint to the machine. i think all the kids will love it at the party. i know my kids will. thanks miles!
