This is a fun craft that kids from toddler age thru elementary age will enjoy. I’ve even had teens get a kick out of this one.

Materials:

  • pipe cleaners (assorted colors)
  • coffee filters (large size)
  • water-based markers
  • small spray bottle filled with water (optional)

Give each child a coffee filter and have them color on it with markers.

Hold up the coffee filter, and spray with water or dip fingers in water and shake them at the coffee filter. Watch as the colors spread and run together.

Once the filter is dry, bunch it in the middle and wrap a pipe cleaner around it. Make sure you leave a little extra pipe cleaner to make two antennas.
