If you have an old record player, poke a hole in the middle of the plate then put the plate on the player. Turn it on and let the kids use markers to swirl color on the plate as it spins. Then cut in a spiral. I did this in the fall when I worked with preschoolers. We'd attach a construction paper leaf on the end and hang on a string from the ceiling of the classroom. Really cool effect with lots of "leaves" falling!
