Me and the bean put together some paper flowers for Mother's day this month and made a bouquet for her grandmas. It was a fun cute little craft with the kiddo!
Flower Bouquet Crafts With Kids
All you need is some coffee filters, markers, straws and a little tape
Color the coffee filters how ever you like. It doesn't really matter, go wild little one! Just make sure there is something underneath so that the marker doesn't bleed on your table.
Then fold the coffee filter into a triangle and dip the end into a cup of water. The water will make its way up the filter. In case your little one goes a little crazy and sticks the whole thing in, just ring out some of the excess.
Place the coffee filters on a plate to dry fully. I left them alone for 24 hours. No need to unwrap them either. Once they were fully dry, I stuck the end into a straw and used a little piece of tape to secure it. I like the look of paper straws for this project.
They come out looking like tie dye flowers! They were a big hit and the grandmas loved their one of a kind gifts.
You may remember in a past post I made flowers using coffee filters and flowers in a different way that looked like peonies!
