Tie-Dye disks

We made tie-dye disks today. The kids had a lot of fun.
To make them you poke a hole in the middle of a coffee filter. Then have the kids make a series of lines and dots or anything they want for that matter all around the filter . With another coffee filter rip off a long piece and roll it together to make a wick to stick through the hole in the middle of the colored filter. Next you want to have a cup of water, place the wick in the water and balance the filter on the top of the cup. The wick will draw the water up through the fibers of the filter making it a cool tie-dye effect.
