Archive for the ‘Coffee Filters’ Category
I think this is my favorite of all of our space themed crafts that we did. I love how these turned out!!
You’ll need: black construction paper, coffee filter, markers, scissors, white paint, glitter glue, regular glue, star stickers, 2 spray bottles
We did the first step outside so it wouldn’t make a big mess inside. Put a small amount of white paint in one of the spray bottles and mix it with water. Then spray it on your black construction paper. This gives that galaxy look.
While that is drying, color the coffee filters with washable markers.
Then spray the coffee filters with water so that the marker spreads. When the coffee filters are dry (and it doesn’t take very long), cut out some circles to make planets. We also used the Earth we made for Earth Day as one of our planets.
Glue the planets onto the construction paper.
Add some stars. (Hunter used stickers, Hailey glued on sequence stars.)
Use the glitter glue to turn your stars into shooting stars.
Our completed projects. I love these!!

Since Earth Day will be here soon I went to my Pinterest Earth Day board and looked for some inspiration.
This one is super simple- you just need coffee filters, blue and green washable markers, and a spray bottle with water in it.
Color the coffee filter with the markers. It really doesn’t matter how you do it. Hunter just scribbled all over his.
Hailey drew some shapes and colored them in.
When you’re done coloring, spray the coffee filter with water and watch the color spread. (This is why your markers need to be washable, so that the colors will mix.)

Our letter this week is the letter V. Here are some of the things we did to learn our letter. I only post the things I am able to take pictures of, but we do a lot more.
First we made a V is for vase. Hailey started out by coloring some coffee filters.
Then she sprayed the coffee filters with a light mist of water. After the coffee filters dried I cut out some flowers.
V is for Vase.
Then Hailey cut out various vegetables that we found in the the fliers from our newspaper.
This “V is for vegetables” page will go in our alphabet book.
I got this letter V sheet here and had Hailey stamp all of the letter Vs with her do-a-dot markers.
Musings of Me has a whole Valentine’s Day unit with tons of fun printables. That’s where this is from.
This is also from Musings of Me- Hailey had to sort the letters based on whether it was a V or some other letter.
I’ll be posting all of our Valentine’s Day projects this week so be sure to check back!
I used to be make these butterflies with my class every year when I taught Pre-K. They are so simple to make and always turn out so pretty.
Here’s what you’ll need: coffee filters, markers, spray bottle and water, pipe cleaners.
Color your coffee filters with the markers. The more color on the filters the better they turn out. I had to help Hailey to really fill them up with color.
Spray water on the colored coffee filters. This causes the colors to run together.
We made a bunch of butterflies because I love making them and Hailey loved spraying them with the water bottle. Once they are dry- just put some pipe cleaner around them to make the body. You can also use craft clothespins to make the body.

I hung them up from the ceiling in Hailey’s playroom and she loves it!
