Circus Craft Idea for a Circus Theme:
To begin your circus tents, cut the coffee filters as shown. This is a great way for little scissor users to practice their scissor skills. Cutting coffee filters is more difficult than regular paper and a great way to practice accuracy as they cut along the folded parts of the coffee filter. Adults can make marks on the coffee filter where needed for the kiddos to cut along.
Once cut, start the painting! We painted our circus tents with red paint on every other folded section of the coffee filters. Use your imagination on your circus tents. Circus tents come in many different colors and designs!
