We're working hard to fill long, cold wet winter days. A coffee filter butterfly is just the thing to brighten up a January afternoon.

Andrew and his butterfly.

1 coffee filter
1 pipe cleaner
water color paints or markers

Have your kiddo be creative with the paints or markers on a coffee filter. Put it on a saucer and flick it/spray it with water so the colors bleed. Hang it up until it dries and then bunch up the middle and twist the pipe cleaner on. You can even use a clothes pin if you don't have a pipe cleaner in the craft box.
