What you need:
- Large industrial coffee filters ( you can find them online)
- Pipe cleaners different colors and textures
- Small droppers
- Water in a small cup for droppers
This coffee filter’s diameter is about foot long. There is something magical about the size of the coffee filter that invites children of all ages to participate.
The activity is very simple, children colored their coffee filter using markers, my only suggestion was not to color over portions already colored.
Once they finish coloring, rest the filter on a tray. The children dropped water on it and saw the marker color defuse through the filter.
When it dries, hold the center of the filter and wrap with the pipe cleaner around to make a butterfly shape.
