Here is a fun toddler-appropriate craft to do on a rainy day (and boy have we been having many of those lately!!). They are little butterflies made from coffee filters
Firstly you need filters for coffee machines, and some crayons ... and some pipe cleaners.
Step 1 - Colour in the filter paper to your hearts content
Step 2 - Paint over the filter paper colouring with water
STEP 3 - Watch the colours smudge into each other
STEP 4 - Let the paper dry for an hour or 2, i put them on newspaper so that the excess water was absorbed
STEP 5 - Scrunch up the paper in the middle and wrap a pipe cleaner around it, leaving the ends as antennae.
STEP 6 - Decorate, let the kids stick on googley eyes!
Final product, pretty cute and cheerful little creations :)
