    Colored Coffee Filter Flowers

    You’ll never look at a coffee filter the same way again after your kids turn them into pretty, personalized flowers. You can use watercolor paint for the same effect (use an old ice cube tray to keep things mess-free) if you don’t have any markers laying around.
