Kids’ Summer Craft Project – Coffee Filter Poppies

Hi Everyone!  Keeping with our kids’ summer crafts theme, today I am sharing coffee filter poppies.  I love projects for the the kids that involve simple, inexpensive supplies that can easily be found around the house.  For this project all you need is coffee filters, and watercolor paints.

Happy summer crafting with the little guys!
