Butterfly Magnet

ages 3-6


Coffee filter, glue, twist-tie, water colors, magnet, clothes pin.

Activity Detail

Begin by painting a coffee filter with water colors and allow it to dry completely. Once dry, glue the coffee filter to one side of a clothes pin, and glue a small magnet (1/2 inch by 1/4 inch) to the other side of the clothes pin. Next glue a twist-tie to the top of the clothes pin. Lastly, scrunch up the coffee filter to make the wings. This piece of art can be put on the refrigerator for display!

When we did this activity, we used a pipe cleaner for the antennae. My daughter loved the fuzzy pink addition.

What a cute idea. You can also color or paint the clothes pins and use a black pipe cleaner for the antenae.
