First, Hannah and I colored on our coffee filters with markers. We used blue and green markers for earth colors and colored the filter. You don't have to have solid coverage but you do have to cover the filter with ink. We did several different filters. Hannah did one with squiggles and wiggles, and then we did a rainbow on one too so we could see how it would turn out.
Next, we put our filters on top of several layers of paper towel and painted the filters with plain old water. Hannah was amazed that the "paint appeared" and did a great job of getting the filters completely wet.
The marker colors mix and spread as the water is applied.
Hannah is holding our rainbow filter and was telling me the colors that we put on it. After we finished we hung all of our colorful creations up to dry.
But not before Hannah decided to wash her face.
Today we finally glued our earth to the piece of paper with Genesis 1:1 printed on it. I explained that God created everything including the earth. Hannah was so cute because she corrected me and said "no mama you made it." Heheheheh
