Coffee Filter Butterfly Craft

This is a fun project for toddler or preschoolers but honestly big kids (moms included) can have fun making these coffee filter butterflies!



Lay your coffee filters out on paper plates and let the kids paint them with watercolors. Try out many different designs. We set out multiple plates with coffee filters on them at once so they had a lot to work with. Once the coffee filters are dry, scrunch them in the middle. Fold a pipe cleaner in half and wrap around the middle. Curl the antennae out to complete it and ta-da! One coffee filter makes one butterfly!

We like to string our butterflies up on display so we can talk about them. They make a fun addition to the playroom during the Spring.
