Kid-Crafted Coffee Filter Flowers

With the weather so beautiful these days, it was a perfect time to do a little craft outdoors with my kids. These coffee filter flowers are so simple and cute. And all the fun my son had afterward chasing his little sister around with the spray bottle of water was priceless (since she was giggling the whole time)!

What You Need:
  • White Coffee Filters
  • Washable Markers
  • Spray Bottle with Water
  • Green Pipe Cleaners

How To Make Them:
  1. Lay coffee filters out flat and have the kids color them with washable markers.
  2. Hold coffee filter up and spray with water. The marker will run and colors will blend.
  3. Lay flat to dry.
  4. Grab coffee filter in middle, twist bottom and bunch up to resemble flower.
  5. Take green pipe cleaners and wrap one end around bottom of flower to form stem.

And be sure to put away the unused coffee filters right away or you might end up with something like this:
She's lucky she's cute!
