coffee filter butterflies.

BUTTERFLY

BUTTERFLY2

I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely starting to get over winter and am ready for spring…Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the winter, I’m just ready for warmer days ahead. That being said, Milo and I worked on making these simple coffee filter butterflies in anticipitation of the first day of spring ahead. They are super easy to make and will keep your toddler or preschooler entertained for a bit.

You need
Coffee filters
Watercolor paints
Pipe cleaners

Lay the coffee filters flat, and paint the whole thing with different colors using the water color paints. Make sure to let the paint absorb the filters. Let them dry, and then accoridan fold the filter, about 1/2 an inch, each fold, and then secure with half a pipe cleaner. Display and hope that spring is on its way…
