coffee filters, wooden clothespins, markers, pipe cleaners, paint brushes, and tub of water
Take the coffee filters and colour them with markers. Trying to find markers that aren't dried out, is a huge challenge in our house. While the marker is drying, you can colour the clothespin. Take the coffee filter and paint lightly with water. You are aiming for a tye dye appearance. Leave the coffee filters to dry and make another one. Once coffee filter is dry, you gather it in the middle and secure with wooden clothespin. Option to use glitter ( which gets everywhere- I suggest glitter glue instead), and eyes. Pipe cleaners are the butterfly antenna, and are just placed inside the clothespin/ twisted around. When we hosted the playdate, we also used old prefolds as our placemats to make less of a mess. Pictured here as well.
