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.

    I love that butterfly craft. You guys do so many fun projects at home :) Sorry about the Party Invite… Once we considered how many people were coming with JUST FAMILY, we could only invite one set of friends… Marty & Kari are our only friends that are friends with both me & Brandi. If it makes you feel any better.. you were first on the standby list in case any of our cousins wouldn’t have been able to make it :)
