I remember having a spirograph when I was young. I received it as a Christmas present and I loved it. I would spend hours playing with it and creating different patterns.
How lovely to be able to introduce a similar product to my child. The Crayola Spin and Spiral Art Station is a lovely set that helps to create spiral art and spin art.
The spiral part of it includes 3 spiral gears to create patterns as well as Crayola Pipsqueaks colour pens. The spin art includes ink to create beautiful splashes of colour. There are 15 paper discs included too.
Aeryn enjoys playing with this set. We have had to replenish the paper discs. I strongly recommend cutting out a few extra on card and keeping them ready as they can be used up quite quickly.
The spiral gears allow for many different combinations and she has made some lovely pictures.
The Spin station is great fun too as you drop the paint and then spin the disc to have the paint splash out to create some beautiful designs.
We like how there is a handy storage area too so you don’t lose parts.
One big plus is that you don’t require batteries for the set so there is no added expense.
Besides allowing children to get creative, it also promotes hand to eye coordination. Aeryn takes time off her device to make new designs.
Its also perfect for creating holiday/Christmas cards for friends, relatives and teachers.
It does have our Elves’ Choice stamp of approval.
Don’t forget to use the discs to cut out a few more on normal card paper. And if you run of ink – you can use Crayola washable ink diluted with water.
