Coffee Filter Butterfly – Toddler Activity

To continue the theme of The Very Hungry Caterpillar we made butterflies!

Supplies:  coffee filter, washable markers, paper plate or piece of cardboard, spray water bottle, pipe cleaner

1. Flatten coffee filter on paper plate or piece of cardboard to contain the mess then SCRIBBLE with washable markers!

2. Squirt the colored coffee filter 2 or 3 times with water to get a watercolor effect. Dry for a few minutes.

3. Scrunch coffee filter to make wings, wrap pipe cleaner to to make the butterfly body and twist the ends to make antenna.

DLTK’s Growing Together has a great tutorial and tons of other kid’s activities.

We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and had snacks. Halfway through the book Caroline ran and found her butterfly wings. :)   We’ve enjoyed picking a book and doing an activity based on it.

What are your favorite toddler books?
