Children will love to create a colorful spring butterfly!

This engaging craft is appropriate for:
pre-k - 3rd grade / 4 - 8 years

You will need:


  1. Cover your work area with newspaper, or place paper plates under the coffee filter.
  2. Flatten the coffee filter and paint it with the watercolors. Set aside to dry.
  3. When the coffee filter is completely dry, fold it back and forth to make half-inch pleats.
  4. Place the folded coffee filter in the center of a pipe stem, and fold one end of the pipe stem up to meet the other end.
  5. Twist the pipe stem to hold the coffee filter in place, and then bend each end to form an antenna.
