If you want to do a neat art activity with the younger set take a regular coffee filter (the ones with the circle bottom and not the cone shaped ones, fold about 3 times and dip each of the corners into different colors of food coloring mixed with water. A muffin pan works great for this whereby you put a different color in each of the molds. Dipping only takes a second. Don't saturate them and do leave a bit of white in the center if you can. Then carefully open them up and place on newspapers to dry. When dry tape them to a window---they're beautiful "stained-glass" pieces and the kids are pretty awed by them. Even the 10 year olds at our small international school had a blast with this easy activity.

They'd make great "snowflakes" too for winter art projects.

YOu're right, Middie---they make neat snowflakes and all you have to do is Google for directions.
