St. Patrick's Day: Art Activity for Kids

Annabelle and I made a St. Patrick's Day art activity.  I found this on another blog and I wanted to link to it but I can't find it now! If you know where it is from please let me know!

Step One: Color on coffee filters using blue and yellow markers.  This is Annabelle's favorite part! We've done this and then turned them into snowflakes and butterflies before. 
Step Two: Use water and a paintbrush and paint water onto the coffee filter so the markers bleed.  Some people use a spray bottle.  I prefer this method because it allows Annabelle to be a part of it.

Step Three: Allow to dry. (I cheated and colored with a green marker. 

Step Four: Arrange into a Shamrock shape and decorate.
