Coffee Filter Butterflies

by Aubrey on May 25, 2011

I was so excited to go to one of our friends last week and have her pull out some crafts for the kids.  I haven’t been so good in this area lately because I don’t want to buy a ton of supplies with our short stay in the DC area.  I was grateful that I took my camera so I could get some pictures.  :-)


  • coffee filters
  • paint
  • pipe cleaners

This is so simple…give your child about 5 coffee filters stuck together and let them paint, color, or do whatever to decorate it.  After is dries, gather the middle to create two wings for the butterfly.  Then take a pipe cleaner and wrap around the center and leave enough on the ends to make the antenna.  Simple, cute, and fun!  Just the way I like it!

I hope you all have a great week and Memorial Day weekend.  We are looking forward to a trip to Boston!  I’ll even get to see Maria along the way…hmmm I should request one of the yummy dishes she has made in Maria’s Kitchen.  I better go look!
