Butterfly Craft

Have you ever made anything fun out of a coffee filter?  I had seen a few ideas so the kids and I decided to give it a try.
First you use markers and color on the coffee filter.
We used washable markers and it worked just great.

Then using a spray bottle we soaked the coffee filter and watched the colors spread
I tranferred the filters onto paper towel to dry and then we used clothes pins, little eyes, puff balls and glue to make butterflies!
Sydney's is on the right, Griffin's is on the left.  Syd helped him with the eyes and puff balls.

I saw this idea for flowers here.


  1. We did those at VBS last year! So cute.

  2. Definitely will have to try this one. They are so cute and look easy to make!!!
