Coffee Filter Earth Art

The children have been intrigued by a current Art activity recently presented to them having to do with our geography lessons .  We have been learning and discussing the Earth and began our study with the Montessori Land and Water Globe.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew I had to try it in my class.  As with most Art lessons, I demonstrated the sequence of steps at circle time and then placed the necessary materials on the shelf for the children to complete independently.

Basket of coffee filters, tray with spray bottle filled with water, jar with green and blue marker with pencil for writing name, and small cloth.

The child brings the materials to the workspace and colors land and water for their Earth.

Lastly, they use the sprayer to spray three times onto the coffee filter.  I was very careful to demonstrate the correct amount of sprays and the kids are following through wonderfully - so far, no stray spraying...! :)
