• Salad Spinner (Yes, I said salad spinner)
  • Food coloring (I used non-toxic paint too, but it didn’t spin as well)
  • Paper (I used construction paper and paper plates)
  • Popsicle sticks or straws for the stems
  • Vase to display! (You can also stick them in clumps of play-doh for a base)


Step 1: Cut the paper to fit inside your salad spinner, then drop some food coloring onto your paper.

Step 3: cut into flower shapes and glue to popsicle sticks and display for all to see!

That’s it! Easy as 1,2,3!


  1. Yep, just tossed it in the dishwasher. And if you use food coloring you don't have to worry, it comes right off! We also used paint just to see, but as long as you rinse it after you're done that comes off as well, I'd just make sure you're using the non-toxic kind, then wash it in the dishwasher to sanitize it.
