Magic of Coffee Filters
My husband loves coffee. However, he is the only one in my house who enjoys it. That is right, I just do not like coffee. I don’t even care for the smell. I know I am strange. But oh well. Nothing you can do with your weirdness right? Well that being said we ALWAYS have coffee filters. They are super cheap, great for crafts and well good for making coffee when we have company. (Don’t worry my husband has a personal cup side of the coffee maker he uses. He still drinks it everyday.)
Well that being said, there are two very easy things to do with coffee filters, that make littles think they are amazing. So you ready to have your mind blown with these 2 little crafts? Both are great for making suncatchers for the windows to decorate for the season.
Coffee Filter Magic 1
Markers (included in my 10 essential supplies for crafts)
Spray bottle of Water
- Give the coffee filter to your little with some markers. Have them color the entire thing. It can have a little white. But try to make little designs and such over the whole coffee filter.
- Place the coffee filters on a tray (because the marker can seep through)
- Spray water on the coffee filter and watch the magic.
- Let dry.
- We used only green, yellow and red because we were making apple shapes. So we cut ours into little apples and put them on the window.
Coffee Filter Magic 2
Cup of water
- Give the water color and coffee filter to your little. Have them paint the whole filter.
- Let dry
- Cut to the design you want. We made these little leaf puppets (also featured in my 52 weeks of crafts subscription).
See how magical they are? They are great for all different times of the year. A very versatile craft item for sure.
