If your home is feeling a little bare after putting away the holiday decorations, add a little cheer with these colorful, coffee filter snowflakes. This is a simple craft that is easy for the kids, creates minimal mess, and can be made entirely with materials you have on hand at home -- as long as you drink coffee (and who doesn't)?!
- Paper coffee filters
- Washable markers
Step 1: Color the coffee filters with WASHABLE markers (washable markers are important as they'll blend together to create a beautiful watercolor design). You can make them as simple or elaborate as you wish -- just scribbling some colors together works just as well as creating a carefully drawn design.
Step 2: Drip water on the colored coffee filters so the colors blend together. It should make a tie-dye effect.
Step 3: Let the filters dry (this only takes about an hour).
Step 4: Fold up the coffee filters about five times until you have a thin triangle shape.
Step 5: Cut designs into the folded coffee filters to make a paper snowflake. Unfold to reveal your design!
Step 6: Hang and enjoy you cheerful creation! #wintercheer #craftingwithkids
