Our art lesson last week involved coffee filters, markers and water.  Does it get any better than that?  I got the idea from here.  The process involved folding the coffee filter a few times, spraying it with water so it's quite wet and then decorating it with dots on both sides using a marker.  When the coffee filter gets unfolded, the dots have bled all the way through making a cool design.  The next part of the project was to make a picture using the two circles.  Austin and Samara both thought the sample of the boom box was cool so they went with that idea.  Denver went a different route . . . an octopus.  :)

Denver's octopus (he explained that the blue part in the middle is the nose)

Victoria opted out of this project . . . just not in the mood for it.  She may still try it at some point as the coffee filter part was really fun!

Fun!! Hannah did a similar thing the other day only they coloured a coffee filter using green and blue markers in places and then sprayed it. When it was done it looked like the world and they attached it to a paper and wrote, 'God created the world.'

So many great options with coffee filters, water and markers!
