Brilliant Coffee Filter Chromatography Apples

Make beautiful art and learn about the science of color with these Brilliant Coffee Filter Chromatography Apples. Invite your kids to color their coffee filters with any water based markers and then watch the real magic unfold! As you spray each finished coffee filter with water, the colored ink will begin to separate in a truly amazing process for stunning works of art. This coffee filter craft is ideal for younger children who want to create beautiful art easily with that highly desired watercolor effect using only markers and water! The apple outline is perfect for preschool lesson plans and a fun addition to the usual chromatography art.

I work with a library youth group, and we make lots of crafts. I am starting a collection of Fall craft ideas. This apple craft is wonderfully creative. In the Fall, I always look forward to reading about apples, making apple crafts, and eating apples! I always have a stash of coffee filters for crafts, so thanks for the new idea.
