Butterfly Study- Coffee Filter Butterfly

Aren't these little critters cute?  Meadow had hers displayed on her window shade and it looks so great there!
Here's how we did it...


  • Water color paints (and a cup of water)
  • Clothes pin (the squeeze kind with the spring in it).
  • Coffee filter
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Paint brushes (we were out so we used q-tips)
  • Googley eyes
  • Glue
Step 1: 
Paint your coffee filter with oodles of colors.

Step 2:
Pinch the coffee filter at the center and clip it with the clothes pin.

Step 3:
Add your pipe cleaner to the clothes pin by wraping aroun just the bottom section.  (optional: curl the ends around a pencil)

Step 4: Glue on your eyes. Once dry find a fun place to display your beautiful butterfly.
