Note to new moms: ALWAYS buy the same toy for each child to prevent melt downs. :)
I got these Swirl and Spins from Melissa and Doug during a great black Friday sale.
I've seen some of these that require batteries, but the ones I purchased were hand cranked. Which, even my 2 year old was able to do successfully due to the wonderful suction cups on the bottom of the device that kept it secured to the table.
Even though we were all 'under the weather' it was a fun and easy project. We did a ton and I'm saving some of them to turn into notes to send out to the family.
It looks messy, but really the paint stays completely contained in its red holder. Here is what it looked like when we were all done and took out the paper.
