You will need:
- Disposable coffee filters
- Paints (my daughter wanted to use Do-a-Dots, but watercolors would work fabulously here!)
- Pipe cleaners in any color (twisty ties that come in boxes of garbage bags would work here as well!)
- Newspaper... not pictured, but I quickly discovered this was a necessity! :)
Spread out a coffee filter.
Line some newspaper underneath and let your little one paint away!
The dot paints dried VERY quickly, and we were able to make a "butterfly" using our pipe cleaners in no time at all. Just scrunch the filter up in the middle, wrap a pipe cleaner around it (you don't even need a whole one), and twist at the top for the "antennae."
