We are over the MOOn excited that Michelle McInerney, founder and craft creator behind MollyMoo, is guest blogging for us this month! Check out her fabulous Spin Art project below:
Have you enjoyed some giggle-filled afternoons experimenting with Melissa & Doug’s Swirl ‘n Spin set and couldn’t bear to just throw out the bright and colourful paint splashed squares afterwards ?
Ever wonder why frisbees have to be so single color and plain ?
Well we found answers to both these questions this week by transforming our delicious Swirl ‘n Spin squares into bright and colorful flying discs that transformed the sky above us into a blur of moving color.
First we swirled and spinned with the primary paint colors that came with the art toy set and set the paper squares aside to dry.
When dry we used our craft scissors to cut around the paint patterns and used craft glue to fix them onto the surface of the frisbee.
The final step was to paint the entire top surface of the frisbee with one layer of découpage glue to seal and protect the Swirl ‘n Spin art frisbee.
and with the parting of the clouds and favourable winds we went outside to play, and play, and play.
