Spin art is also a quick way for generating heaps of colourful art for the Christmas card list.
What sets this spin art activity apart from all the other spin art projects out there?

It makes use of a material that Raising Kinley has raved about here before.
Photo paper.
The photo paper soaks up the paint so that there is no time spent waiting for paint to dry.
Perfect for the impatient creator. Or last-minute-Christmas-card-maker.

Fold card stock in half to create a card and glue your spin art shapes to the front.

The spin art also makes for lovely gift tags. Simply punch a hole at the top of the shape and thread ribbon or a pipe cleaner through. Use a permanent marker to write names on the tags.
