The Littlest Diva came up with the idea for crosses and after a few snips of our coffee filters we had our basic shape.
Once we had our shape, we were ready to have fun folding the coffee filters in different ways. After doing so many of these crafts we like to try to come up with different designs by folding our coffee filter a variety of ways. The fun part is that you never know what you will get until you open it up.
Then we got to the fun part - getting creative with our Do-A-Dot Markers.
We had fun mixing up our dot patterns and it was really cool to see how the different folds gave us some really cool patterns.
Once you start opening these up and seeing your patterns - they get quite addictive so beware. Be sure you have lots of coffee filters handy.
Here are some of the fun patterns we ended up with.
What I like best about these crafts is that kids of all ages can enjoy them because there is no right or wrong way to do them.
Have fun do-a-dot cross painting!
