Recipe for Fun!

Have an adult cut the unused coffee filters into leaf shapes. Then, using water-based markers, color them any way you’d like. For the tie-dye effect, it’s best when you use lots of different colors. Spray your leaves with a little water, and watch as the colors run! Don’t use too much water or the colors will fade. Let the filters dry, and then use a marker to draw in the leaf veins if you like.
