Tie Dye Coffee Filters

Materials:

Coffee Filters (not the cone shape)

Water Soluble Markers

Water in a spray bottle

Use the markers to color on the coffee filter. Now spray it with water holding the bottle 8 -10" above the filter.You don't need much water to make the tie dye work. Now, watch what happens!

Tips: Larger more abstract designs work better. Thicker lines are better than thin ones. Be sure to leave some white space. Bold and bright colors work best.

Welcome to the Explorium of Lexington

Children’s Museums are the fastest growing type of museum in the country and are unique among museums for the large number of interactive exhibits and educational programming presented to visitors. Visitors engage in hands-on experiences that inspire a curiosity for learning.

In 1987, a group of inspired citizens presented the idea of a children’s museum to Lexington Mayor Scotty Baesler and future Mayor Pam Miller. With the assistance of Lord Cultural Resources, a consulting firm in Toronto, the city began serious planning for the Lexington Children’s Museum. The site selection committee considered several sites and chose the current location in Victorian Square. Since first opening its doors in 1990 the Museum has hosted over three million visitors.
