For a crafty fun time, fold a coffee filter in half 3 times, and cut the outer edge as shown.
Open up the coffee filter to make a sun, and invite the kiddos over to paint with yellow, orange, and pink/red water colors on it!!
Since Clara is so young, I gave her markers to use instead (which kept the mess to a minimum), and then she painted with water over top.
She loved all the bright yellow and orange!
...and she especially loved using the paintbrush with some water to blend the colors together!
Emily thought the colors blended so well that it looked a bit like tie-dye!
Allow the coffee filters to dry, and display proudly in a sunny window!
They make me smile every time I see them!! Have fun!!!
Emily and I will be on NBC's The 10! Show this Tuesday to demo quick (and frugal) Summer crafts for kids -- if you would like free tickets to the show, click here! We would LOVE to meet you!!
