Coffee Filter Art

Using either a white coffee filter or a paper towel as his paper, let your child scribble and draw with magic markers (supervise carefully, use washable markers, and protect surfaces). He’ll be amazed to watch the colors bleed into the soft fibers of the paper towel or filter, and the results have a soft-focus, stained-glass effect.
