COFFEE FILTER FLOWER PENCIL

Grade K-2
Age: 4-8

Submitted by Gretta Keel from Sasebo Japan.

Objectives

A nifty, thrifty idea for mom.

What You Need:

  • coffee filters
  • big washable color markers
  • spray bottle of water
  • thread
  • pencil

What You Do:

  1. Mark on 2 or 3 coffee filters with the washable markers, big color blotches are ok.

  2. Place the filters flat and stack them

  3. Fold them all together (as shown in the diagram), and roll the filters at the fold around the eraser end of a new pencil. Wrap with string to secure.

  4. Push pencil into a holder and spray with water.

  5. Watch the colors fade into each other.

  6. When the flower dries, spray lightly with Moms perfume and fluff. She'll have a fancy flowered pencil for her desk.
