My son enjoyed building his Spin Art Machine. The instructions were easy for him to follow and includes photos. He connected a beadboard to wires and a battery to make the art machine spin! I was pretty impressed with the quality of the product. 


The finished product---pretty cool art work! And the project came with extra paper.
