Before moving back to California I was teaching preschool. I like some parts more than others of the job, but I LOVED this craft activity we did with the kids. I decided to use the activity again with my own kids to make Valentines gifts for their teachers. It is SO simple and SO pretty. Below I break it down for you.
What you need
. Clear spray paint to seal
4X4 felt squares to glue on the back
I use glue dots to stick the felt on the back ( hot glue works best)
I bought little rubber feet to place on the back to make them “real” coasters
We lined the tiles up, and got to town coloring them. Once everything was colored, I dropped a few drops of rubbing alcohol on them and the color begins to spread. Be sure to use the strongest rubbing alcohol or the colors will not bleed. I let them dry overnight, then sprayed them with a clear spray paint sealer. When that was dry, I glued felt on the back, put the rubber feet on and DONE!
