Coffee Filter Flowers
Coffee filters, pipe cleaner, markers
Begin with a stack of white, basket-style coffee filters. Give your child a stack of the coffee filters and a bunch of markers, and let him or her decorate them. These will form the petals of the flowers. Once they're done, group the filters into stacks of three or four. Then twist together to bottom of the stack of filters, and secure it with a colored pipe cleaner, which will be the stem of the flower. Then fan out the layers, and your child has a beautiful, homemade flower!
