Coffee Filter Poppy Craft

coffee filter poppy craft

Coffee filter coloring is a lot of fun to do.  I find it relaxing to sit and watch the colors flow together to make unique patterns.

Using this technique to make a Rememberance or Veteran's Day poppy is a simple and fun way for chidlren to appreciate the importance of remembering.

Materials:

Note:  You can complete this project using food colouring instead of washable markers.  However!  I find this option to be very messy so would not do it with young children (if they get food colouring on their clothing you won't be able to get it out).  I would only use this option with children over age 10 and even then would want a good amount of supervision and old clothes to be worn.
