Try It Tuesday: Coffee Filter Butterflies

This is a super fun and easy project for kids and uses dot markers.

Supplies Needed Per Butterfly:

  • 2 round coffee filters
  • dot markers
  • 1 pipe cleaner
  • spray bottle of water


  • Flatten out the coffee filters
  • Make dot marks all over the filters 
  • Spray down with water
  • Allow to Dry
  • Pinch each of the filter to the center so that one creates the top wings and the other creates the bottom wings
  • Fold a pipe cleaner in half and twist the bottom (folded part) inch together
  • Place the pinched coffee filters in between the pipe cleaners on top of the twisted part
  • Twist over the top of the wings to secure in to place
  • Curl pipe cleaner ends to make antennae

You can also try using washable makers like we did in this butterfly craft.
