Make your own Tupperware Spin Art (Method 2)

Today is the last day in our toddler painting series.  Boo hoo.  Sob sob.  There, there, no need to cry.  I'm leaving you with my favorite painting technique of the week.  Now you can make spin art with Tupperware and coins!

- Tupperware
- Tempera Paint
- Paper cut to fit inside of plastic container
- Masking Tape
- Clear Tape
- Coins (We used quarters and pennies) 

1.   Use clear tape to attach your coins to the bottom of the Tupperware.  (We used quarters first, but then found that we had a nicer result when we added some smaller coins like pennies to the bottom of the pile.)
2.  Tape your paper inside the Tupperware container.
3.  Add drops of paint.
4.  Cover your container and spin it around and around.

That's it! Open up your container and admire your lovely spin art.

(For those of you braver folks with older children, you could also try leaving the lid off.  Then, you could try to drip paint into the container as it spins.  I'm not sure if this would work... but it would be fun to try.  Just make sure to cover your work area to keep everything clean!)

And so ends our Toddler Paint Series.  In case you missed the beginning of the series, you can find other cheap and easy ways to paint with toddlers by clicking the links below:
