Showcase Saturday- Butterflies

 My girls love doing anything with coffee filters.  They love to watch the colors blend together.  We didn’t do this craft this week but it’s a fun one that I thought I would share.  These pictures are from awhile ago too. 

All you do is color the coffee filter with washable markers.  You can use all different colors.  Then spray the filters with water.  This will allow the colors to blend into each other.  Once the filters dry, take the clothes pins and put them in the middle of the coffee filter.  Spread the “wings” out to make them full.  You can decorate the clothes pin however you like.  We used googly eyes and drew a mouth.  Then we used the pipe cleaners to make the antennas. 

Here are some pictures of what we made.
