Gorgeous coffee filter ladybug craft to make with young kids
It was a Tuesday morning, my son’s favorite. It’s his art class day. He loves this class and always looks forward to creating a new masterpiece. Unfortunately that day I just couldn’t take him. He was disappointed, I knew it. He didn’t show it. But I knew I had to make it up to him. So I planned all sorts of art activities for us to do throughout the day. One of them was coffee filter painting. We had never used coffee filters before for our art and craft activities. It was a hit and we can’t stop creating with them ever since.

- coffee filter
- washable marker (red)
- permanent marker (black)
- googly eyes
Step 1: Open a coffee filter flat on your painting surface and color it with a red marker. Try to cover as much as possible but don’t worry if you don’t. Some white spots won’t be a problem.
Step 2: Use a spray bottle or a bowl of water and a paintbrush to wet the coffee filter. We had our coffee filters placed on cookie sheets to avoid for the entire table to get wet.
Step 3: Let the coffee filter dry completely. It shouldn’t take too long.
Step 4: Use a black permanent marker to draw the head, middle line and round spots. Make sure to place a paper towel underneath before you start using the permanent marker as the color will go through.
Step 5: Glue the googly eyes.
