Butterfly Craft

The girls and I have been doing a few crafts. We did this Butterfly Craft earlier this month, and they loved it! We used washable markers, round coffee filters, a spray bottle with water, and black pipe cleaners.

We colored the coffee filters with the markers and then sprayed them lightly with the water until the colors started to blend and run along the filter. The girls didn't really color in any sort of pattern, and I did a little bit of a pattern. It didn't matter how we did it.

Once the filters were dry, we wrapped the pipe cleaners around the filters so that we had butterfly wings and antennea! The girls liked seeing the colors run, and then they made their butterflies fly around the room.
