(April 16, 2014) At one point Nico came out of our craft room running with a salad spinner in hand, all giddy. If you are a crafter, especially with kids, you probably know that he was not in the mood for a Caesar salad, but for a wonderfully simple and efficient kind of art: Spin art. Back in Chateauguay we had done dozens of cardstock circles, squirted paint on them, spun them around and had pretty much instant art. Wet art, but pretty much instant.
Since Easter was drawing near, Valerie had the idea of making some spin art Easter eggs! Cutting an egg shape right away was not an option, since it would just move around in the spinner, so we would make regular circles and cut them into egg shapes after.
Nico brought one of the eggs to the Easter bunny as a gift and some of the other ones will be used as postcards for family, so you can use them in many different ways and each of them is a unique piece of art
