Springtime is one of the bestest times of the year. The air is warming, the flowers are blooming, and the kids and I get back to crafting! Spring is a great time to get into crafting with your kids. There are so many fun and easy craft ideas for spring that you can make with almost no extra supplies at all!
We’ve been making lots of coffee filter crafts for kids lately and, with spring coming, I thought it was a good time to share this super simple coffee filter flower craft! Like our coffee filter basketball craft, this is one that you only need a handful of supplies to make. And I can almost guarantee that you have them in your pantry already. 😉

Coffee Filter Crafts for Kids: Coffee Filter Flower Craft
To make this, you’ll need the following: (Affiliate links provided here for convenience. For more, see our Disclosure Policy.)
Start by flattening out two white coffee filters. Use a bright color to color the center of each filter completely. Use a glue stick to glue the filter centers onto separate pieces of construction paper.
Then use a green crayon to draw a flower stem and leaves.
You can make these flowers using almost any colors you like!
Make a pair to give to a friend this spring!
You could also overlap the two “flowers” and glue them to one piece of construction paper. Just be sure to draw the stems closer – as if they’re being held together.
You can even add some “grass” to the picture and you’re done!
If you want to add a bit more color, let the kids color the outside circle with a bright flowery color, leaving the center untouched.
You can either use a different color on the center or just leave it white.
Wasn’t that simple? This coffee filter flower craft really and truly takes five minutes. I’ve timed it. 🙂
