How To Make He is Risen Coffee Filter Craft

Step 1: Preparing the Coffee Filter

Begin with a plain white coffee filter as your canvas. Flatten it out on a protected surface. Using your washable markers, color the coffee filter with bright, vibrant colors. There’s no right or wrong way to do this; encourage your kids to fill the entire filter with a variety of colors, perhaps mimicking a sunrise with warm yellows, oranges, and pinks.

Step 2: The Magic of Water

After coloring, place the coffee filter on a baking sheet or cover your work area with wax paper. This step can get a little messy, so you might want to protect your surface with paper towels. Gently spray the colored coffee filter with water using the spray bottle until the colors begin to bleed and blend into each other. The water acts as a catalyst, creating a beautiful watercolor effect. Set aside to dry. We often use hair blow dryer to speed up this process.

Step 3: Creating the Scene

While your filter is drying, it’s time to create the elements of your Easter scene. Cut out three simple cross shapes from the black construction paper. Then tear or cut some green construction paper to resemble grassy hills.

Step 4: Assembling the Craft

Once the coffee filter is dry, take the blue construction paper, which will act as your backdrop, and glue the grassy hills to the bottom. Then, glue the coffee filter above the grass, with the colored side up, to represent the sky. Now, place the black crosses on the hill, positioned in a way that resembles the historic event of the resurrection.
