This past Saturday, it rained most of the morning, so the kids and I stayed in our pajamas and read books, watched some cartoons and created tie dye coffee filters. These are so easy to make, and the girls had a great time creating their own works of art.
What You’ll Need:
First, place the coffee filters on plates, and color designs all over the filter. Make sure to explain that your art doesn’t need a lot of detail, because the lines will all blur, and there won’t be much of a house, cat, car, etc. left when it’s all finished – and that’s alright!
Next, dip the paintbrush in water and paint over all of the designs with your marker. This is the fun part for both children and adults – they get to paint, and there’s no mess to clean up!
Finally, when most of the marker is blurred by the paintbrushes, lay the filters on paper towels to let them dry.
And Voila! You’ve created a colorful piece of art, that your children will want to create over and over again.
