Kids Craft: Coffee Filter Snowflake Garlands
No matter what the weather is like outside, this easy craft can turn your home into a winter wonderland. Since round coffee filters are already the right shape, with just a few folds and cuts you can create a whimsical flurry without even needing to put a hat on. You can keep them winter white or add a swirl of rainbow with water color paint.

2. Fold the filter in half to form a semi-circle. Then fold it in half, and in half again to create a rounded triangle
3. Using your scissors, cut triangles, rectangles, and semi circles out from along the edges of the filter.
