Coffee Filter Flutterbyes

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 :)
