Kids Corner: Coffee Filter Butterflies

Warm weather means that the flowers are starting to bloom and the insects are beginning to come out. We're taking our inspiration from nature today to create pretty butterflies to hang either inside or outside.

What You Need:
  • Coffee filter
  • Markers
  • Clothes pin
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Paper towels
  1. Take the coffee filter and draw lines all over it with the markers.
  2. Wet the coffee filter and let it dry on a piece of paper towel.
  3. When it is dry, put the coffee filter on the clothes pin.
  4. Wrap a small piece of pipe cleaner around the "head" of the butterfly to make antennae.
  5. Draw a face on the clothes pin, and you are done!
