{ Spring Banner }

We have been a little stir crazy lately since it's too cold to spend much time outside, so today we decided to get crafty!

We painted coffee filters with watercolor paints and made a fun spring banner to liven up the breakfast area.  The kids loved this project!

Love these bright colors

and these too!

He opted to use crayons.  Writing words in watercolors can be frustrating...trust me! 

 She tried a folding technique.

Lee and I even got involved.  Lee folded his up and tried to get a uniform effect going throughout.  It was a great idea, but when all the colors meshed together it reminded me of the Easter egg that my dad made every year when I was a kid.  Much like mixing up all the egg dye at the end of the Easter egg dying session, Lee's filter turned brown!  He ended up adding coffee grounds for fun!
 Pretty, right?
We strung up the filters when they dried and made this fun banner.  It looks pretty when the sun is shining through!  Most of all, we all had fun making it!
