It’s: Coffee Filter Art :: コーヒーブレイク

Prep Time: 5 minutes / Play Time: From 20 minutes, depending on love of independent play with markers …

Materials:

  1. Coffee Filters: In this example, I used Basket.
  2. Water.
  3. Markers.
  4. Small Cups (or small bowl for inverted submersion, see below).

Variations: You can use cone filters, you just have to adjust where/how you apply the markers. #paopao #ふくろう #whew #whoknew # 分からない #woohoo #ioi #owlsofinstagram

Instructions:

1. Gather all of the materials

2. Draw circles at the center of the coffee filter.

3. For a more wide-spread result, make the circles larger than shown.

5. Fold filters.

6. Gently, balance and place the end-point into the glass of water. If you submerge the marker-drawn area, the ink will not spread within the filter, it will instead color the water.

6. Controlled Experiment! #ici #paopao ! #chiefandmischief #泡泡 #doublehappiness #doublebubble

Notes:

  • Really you can draw anywhere on the filter, such that when the water creeps up, the ink will begin to distribute.
  • You can also use a bowl, and invert how you place the filter into the water 😉
