rainy days are perfect for crafts :)

-washable markers
-permanent markers
-coffee filters
-wooden clothespins
-water bottle

flatten a coffee filter and use the washable markers to put color all over it. abstract is best!

then spray the filter with lots of water to make the colors bleed together. set it aside to dry.

while that is drying, use the permanent markers to decorate the clothespin/body of the butterfly.

when the filter/wings are completely dry, scrunch it up and put it through the clothespin!

mine and Wesley's butterflies :)

here they are hanging from the ceiling in a corner above his bed.

I can't remember where I heard of this idea! I either did it at a summer camp when I was younger, or with some kids when I worked at the Eagle's Nest (a playroom where you can drop your kids off while you do your grocery shopping).
