Easy Craft: Tye-dye Coffee Filters!

I'm usually the last to know about everything so it doesn't surprise me that it took four years of being a Mom to learn about these nifty little things.  Have you seen these?  They are color dabbers and you can get them just about anywhere and I'm just now finding out about them:


There are lots of uses for these, but a favorite around our house is tye-dye coffee filters.  We took the coffee filters and folded them over a bunch of times and then used the dabbers to make different designs.  It was pretty good for strength and patience too, because we had to really press down to get the color to bleed all the way through the coffee filters.  As an aside, in case you're wondering, that is marker on Munchkin Girl's arms.  I'm not sure why, but she and Little Buddy thought it was funny to color on each other with markers.  This has nothing to do with the color dabbers so don't be afraid.


Then we opened them up and found the most beautiful result!



Normally Munchkin Girl gets bored with stuff eventually, but this time, she would have kept doing them all afternoon.  I finally had to put a stop to it before Daddy ran out of coffee filters. 




I'm sorry to repeat myself so often, but I wanted to say thank you again to all of you for your support on my book!  I have been humbled by the response and so thrilled that the book continues to rank high on Amazon in the categories of Motherhood and Babies and Toddlers!  If you haven't seen it yet, I hope you will take a minute to read the reviews...you can even download the first chapter on your Kindle before you buy it!

If you have ever asked yourself questions like, these, then this is the book for you!

  • Why do my kids drive me so crazy sometimes?
  • Why do they just want to watch TV all day long?
  • How am I ever supposed to get anything done when my kids won't stop pestering me?
In this book, I teamed up with former Kindergarten teacher, Susan Case, and we worked together to give a Mom's point of view and a teacher's point of view, so that we could give you activities that not only keep the kids busy, but also keep them motivated to learn and develop their natural curiosity.

  6. I did this yesterday. My paint must be too thick because it wouldn't go through more than 2 layers :( I was so disappointed. I did them with food coloring and they were pretty, but not as pretty as yours.

  10. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email emutemple@gmail.com
