Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

(I warned you that I love staining coffee filters.  My mom is quite fond of carnations, so I had the boys make a few.  This is easy.  Evan preferred to make white carnations, so all his hard work on staining them was for nothing.  Of course, the flowers still looked pretty and made it a no mess project.)

Things you need:

  • Coffee filters
  • Markers
  • A bowl of water
  • Paint brush
  • Smock
  • Green pipe cleaners

Have the child color the filters with markers.
