Watercolor Snowflakes

Copos de Nive con Acuarelas

We made some snowflakes using coffee filters and we painted them with watercolor paint to bring some color in this season.

Hicimos copos de nieve ultilizando filtros para hacer cafe, luego los pintamos con acuarelas para traer color en esta estacion tan blanca.

Here is the coffee filter

Aqui esta el filtro


You need to fold it in half

Dobla el filtro en la mitad


And half

y otra mitad
And half all the way

y otra


Then  use scissors to cut any shape you want

Ahora corta con las tijeras del modo que te guste


Open up

Abrelo


Start painting!! We put the snowflake into  a tray with paper towel.

Y empieza a pintar!! Pusimos el copo en una bandeja o tambien carton con papel toalla.
Here are C's snowflakes and mine...she cut her snowflake because she says "she can do it all by herself".It is her favorite phrase since months ago.
Aqui esta el copo de nieve y el tambien el copo de C..ella lo corto a su manera porque dice " yo puedo hacerlo sola".Es su frase favorita estos ultimos meses..

And we hung  them up on  the ceiling ( I used yarn and  tape)

Y los colgamos en el techo (use lana y cinta adhesiva).



Have a wonderful weekend!

Que tenga un maravilloso fin de semana!!
