Coffee Filter Painting

It’s hilarious how quickly children learn that some adults live off coffee. During a lot of the pretend play that I engage in with children, when offered a drink it is usually a “cup of coffee”.

If you’re one of those parents that live off coffee than I am sure your children will enjoy this activity because they can utilize one of your coffee filters.


What you will need:

Watercolor Paint


Coffee Filter


How to:

Step 1: Let your child choose the color/s of paint they wish to create with

Step 2: Pour a small amount of water into a container

Step 3: Paint the coffee filter

Step 4: Let it dry


What a fun activity! Your child will be able to explore with an arrange of colors while learning primary and secondary colors.
