Make It Mondays: Coffee Filter Butterfly

The North Liberty Recreation Department’s Make It Monday craft this week is a coffee filter butterfly. Included in this week’s kit are all the materials you need to make the craft (you should provide glue and scissors), coloring sheets and activity ideas.

Each week, Make It Monday offers a free to-go activity for kids. To participate in the program, simply stop by the North Liberty Community Center, 520 W. Cherry Street, and pick up an activity kit while supplies last. Kits are free.
