    I’ve only tried the salad spinner and soda bottle ideas. A few years ago my daughter used the soda bottle idea to do a time line for a social studies project, and it turned out really well! You have shared some really cool ideas!!

    • Thank you for stopping by! We hope to make Artsy Play Wednesday a place where many people can stop by each week to gain many new and fun ideas! The salad spinner is fun, isn’t it? I did that activity with my Kindergarten class once – they LOVED it!
