Coffee Filter Crafts for Kids: Coffee Filter Sun Craft
To make this craft, you’ll need the following: (Affiliate links are provided for convenience. For more, see our Disclosure Policy.)
Start by simply coloring the coffee filter bright yellow. The actual color we used is called “Dandelion” and it was a nice bright color that seemed better than ordinary yellow.
Use your glue stick to glue the filter down onto the center of a piece of construction paper. Light blue works well because it resembles the sky.
Now, just use a yellow colored pencil to draw “rays” around the sun’s edge. Simple triangles work just fine. We decided to use an orange colored pencil to add a little more color to our sun and rays. To do so, we just sketched a few lines over the whole filter lightly.
And we’re done! Just easy peasy from start to finish!
If you’re working with a group of kids such as at a daycare, an afterschool program, or a group party, this coffee filter sun craft is a perfect activity since you don’t need a lot of supplies, you don’t need a lot of time, and the kids don’t need a lot of help!
