Filter Fun

 Little Mister enjoyed this one very much! We did it over and over and over again!

Objective- Notices differences in colors (MS Early learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers: Scientific Development 3.3.3)

Materials- Coffee filters, Crayola Markers, Small spray bottle, water, card stock

1. Color on a filter with markers (make colorful pictures or just scribbles). We started out with just scribbles but after we did a few then he wanted to start trying it with pictures!
2. Place the decorated filter on a piece of card stock.
3. Mist the filter until the colors begin to bleed together.
4. Carefully lift the filter to see the beautiful design which appears on the card stock.

Alternate activity-
Let the filters dry flat on wax or foil and they can be used later for other crafts. We plan to use ours as tissue for a stain glass project.
