Activity: Arts & Crafts

July 8, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

Have fun making these beautiful coffee filter butterflies using materials you may already have at home! Please gather the following supplies: markers, two coffee filers, water, an eyedropper or small measuring spoon, pipe cleaners and something to lay your work on (a cookie sheet, newspaper, paper plate, etc.)

Simply flatten out the two coffee filters, one on top of the other and decorate them with the markers.

Then take your eyedropper or measuring spoon and fill it with water. Drip the water over your design until it is completely wet.

Allow the coffee filters to completely dry (this may take awhile) place them outside if it is a warm day!

Once they are dry, pull the two coffee filters apart and begin folding them.

Put the two folded strips on top of each other and take your pipe cleaner and wrap it around the center of the strips. 

Manipulate the pipe cleaners into butterfly antennas.

Finally, pull apart the folds in the coffee filters and shape your butterfly!

Follow the  guide  if you need more assistance.
