Link Bug Kids Art Contest!

Its time to have some fun with the Kiddos!   This is a great project for any rainy day (or snow) afternoon!

All you need is a coffee filter, some markers, and a pipe cleaner!  Color the flattened out coffee filter (the more colors the better) Make sure to put something underneath the filter to protect the surface as they do bleed through.  When they are done coloring take a spray bottle and light spray to give a tie dye effect. Let dry. Pinch together in the middle of the filter and tie off , leaving enough to make your attenna. There is no end to what kind of Bugs you can create!  You are only allowed to use the three above items to enter this contest.

When your project is finished.  email your picture to  (along with the age and gender of the child) .  All will be uploaded in to an album and we will have a vote to see which "bug" is everyone's favorite!  The deadline for submitting your photos is February 7th 2011.  The winning Bug will receive a coloring activity pack!  (value $10) (prize items will depend on age and gender of child but will include crayons, markers, coloring and/or activity books etc)
