When your kids tire of chasing butterflies in the backyard, they can make some of these whimsical butterflies to display inside.
What you need:
•Round coffee filters
•Watercolor paints and brushes
•Black pipe cleaners
Instructions for the project-Spray water on to the coffee filters until they are wet enough to lay flat. Have the children paint on the filters with the watercolors. The colors will run and blur which creates a beautiful pastel effect. Once completely dry, gather up the filter in the middle and use your pipe cleaner to create a body. Spread the wings and fly!
