Toddler Thursday - Dyed Coffee Filters

When discussed the letter V in our homeschooling preschool group we did a fun vase craft.

Materials needed: 3 sheets/colors of construction paper, coffee filers, q-tips, glue.

Cut out a vase from construction paper - we used something like this for a pattern.

Use green construction paper and cut out a few stems.

Glue the vase and stems onto another piece of construction paper.

Then the extra fun part:

Grab the coffee filters and let your child color them with markers. Make circle designs or lines, etc. Then take a Q-tip, dip it in a little water, and put it on the coffee filter where you used the markers. It give the coffee filters a tie die affect. See an example here.

Then make your filter into a flower and attached it to the stems!
