Art Box/Art Project

paint palette

I didn’t just put together an art box for Selena, this was more of a planned art project. She has gone weeks almost a month or more not wanting much to do with art projects or the art box, so when she asked me last night for an art project, I jumped into a squeal and this morning I was very excited to do something with her.

We used Coffee filters, water colors, and pipe cleaners to make butterflies. I know I seen this project on someone else’s blog but couldn’t remember where. So if you did this please let me know so I can give you the credit for the idea.

We then made a pretty bouquet for our table. Our first touch of Spring.

  3. Those turned out so cute!! Selena looks like she loved making the butterflies :-)

  4. What a wonderful butterfly. Another cool method I saw was coloring with washable markers and then spraying them with water.
