Coffee Filter Easter Eggs

We made these coffee filter Easter eggs last year and will probably make some more this year. I love the tie-dye effect!

Materials:

  • coffee filter
  • scissors
  • markers (you can use dried-out markers)
  • water-spray bottles

Directions:

1. Trim a coffee filter so that it is egg-shaped.

2. Color with markers.

3. Spray with water. If you have dried-out markers, now is the time to break them out! Draw with the dried-out markers on the wet surface.

Educational Connections:

  • History/Culture: Why is the egg a symbol of spring? Why did the egg become connected with the Christian holiday of Easter?
  • Science: Explore the parts of the egg.
  • Science: Which animals lay eggs? Which animals do not?
