Spin Art Easter Eggs
Supplies: *contains affiliate links
- Spin Art Machine
- Fluorescent Tempera Paint, Pink, Yellow, Orange
- Candy Squeeze bottle
- Plastic Decorating Eggs (Available at Walmart)
- Black Chalkboard Eggs (Available at Walmart)
- Pour some tempera paint into the squeeze bottles. Shake well before pouring.
- Place a plastic decorating egg into the spin art machine.
- With one color, place 3 dots of paint on the egg.
- Have one person hold the spin art lid in place and a second person spins the egg quickly.
- Allow the egg to stop spinning. Add 3 dots of the next color of paint and spin again.
- Repeat with a third color if desired. If you find a certain area is missing some paint add one dot of paint in the area and spin again.
- Since most of the paint flies off the egg, they dry pretty quickly. If you use a bit more paint, allow the egg to sit in the spinner a few minutes until dry.
It is really hard to make this project go wrong. Every single egg was a little different and we loved them all. I personally prefer less paint and some of the original egg color peeking through. My kids loved the eggs covered completely in paint, so they would add more until they got the look they loved.
Did we make a huge mess? Nope. As long as someone was holding the plastic cover down, the paint and egg stayed just where they were supposed to. If you don’t hold the cover down, the spinning egg will knock it out of place.
We have an Alex brand art spinner and it works really well. The egg fits inside great. Other spinners may work differently, so just try things out for yourself.
My daughter really loved making these Easter eggs. Crafts with kids can stressful if you try to get overly complicated, so this was perfect!
Which one is your favorite? The white eggs or the black eggs?
