water colours (we just used food colouring in water)
pippettes or droppers
single hole punch
Paint your paper plate and leave to dry.
when you plate is dry, cut out the centre leaving a ring.
Punch holes around the side of the plate (I punched 3 overlapping to make a big enough hole)
Use the pippettes to drop your water colours on your coffee filters. you can use many colours and the kids love watching them change as the colours mix.
Leave the coffee filters to dry. You can speed this up with a hair dryer if you wish. Once they are dry, bunch them into flowers and pull through the holes.
