Salad Spinner + hair gel + paint

A link from a girlfriend was sent to me to give a try with my daughter as a craft time idea.. which involved hair gel ( a huge bottle for a $1 at the dollar store), small paper plates (again $1 from dollar store),  paint, and thanks to Alex, a salad spinner.
FIrst paint the hair gel onto the plate

As you can see it doesn't really matter how you place the paint, you just let your "mini me " have fun with paint. We also added sparkles to give it some "glimmer" effect.

Now let the laws of physics and gravity and have fun, spin that sucker fast or slow, no matter what you do in the end, to watch Adele's face see the outcome first ... priceless!


Our creations!

this was what was left at the end. 

As you can see, clean up is minimum and because the paint was water based I just put the spinner in the sink and watched the water change to multiple colors.. and that was it!

We had a lot of fun with this project, and I can't wait to do it again, as now she wants to make masks with all the colors and her little imagination is going wild with ideas.

SO huge thank you to Alex for giving us the salad spinner!!!!
