Coffee Filter Shamrock

I'm being completely lazy today -- it must be the rain and lack of sunshine!  Anyway, I'm reposting one of the first activities we did on this blog (back when just my mom was reading)!

This activity might get a little messy!  Make sure you have on paint clothes!

Yellow and blue fingerpaint

1)  Trace a shamrock onto a coffee filter.

2)  Use a dab of yellow finger paint with a dab of blue on top (this is also a good color mixing activity).  Finger paint away!
3)  Allow to dry (you can speed up the process with a hairdryer), cut-out, and hang in the window.

These really do look nice hanging in the window!

What a cute idea! I've always wondered how paint held up on coffee filters since they're so thin. Now I know! :)
