You will need coffee filters, washable markers, newspaper, and a spray bottle filled with water.
Lay down newspaper and set your coffee filters on top.
This will get quite wet and messy, and the colors will bleed, so use something to protect your table in addition to the newspaper. We like to use an old sheet.
Disappearing Spelling Words!
Have your child write their spelling words on the coffee filter with the washable markers. You will need to use washable markers (don’t get out your Sharpies!) to get the words to disappear. This step, quite frankly, is the practice part. The rest is all for fun – a bonus for writing out all your spelling words.
Now, it’s time for fun. Spray, spray, and spray the coffee filters with water until the spelling words disappear. If you’re lucky, you might get some pretty tie-dyed coffee filters. But, one thing your guaranteed of is a whole lot of fun!
The next time your child needs to practice spelling words, tell them to make to try disappearing spelling words!
