I've seen many posts about painting with a salad spinner but this one sold me on it! We had to make peppermints. I found it worked best when the paint was a little watered down and we dripped it in a few spots. It took a few tries to get it right but in the end we had three that looked liked peppermint candies. Eva honestly could have cared less what the end result looked like as she had so much fun just spinning the spinner! When they dried I wrapped them in a cut up gallon size plastic baggie and attached them to a ribbon for hanging.
