Coffee Filter Tie Dye Experiment
Fun and simple decorations your little one can create through a simple chemistry science experiment. Show your little one the way the colors run and blend together coming in contact with water.
What you’ll need:
Disposable gloves (optional)
Newspaper or area to work on
4 Easy Steps:
Place coffee filter on newspaper (to avoid a mess) and color in half the filter with your washable markers
Fold your filter in half again and again until it forms a small triangle
Turn on the water faucet (or dip in a bowl with water) and place just the tip of your coffee filter triangle under the water (wear the gloves to avoid a mess). Just the tip needs to get wet. This will cause the colors to run and blend up the filter
Squeeze your fingers over the filter to remove excess water, open and let dry
To create flowers, twist the middle of the coffee filter to form a flower shape, cut the tip and insert a straw. Tape around the straw to secure in place.
