I think this craft is pretty self-explanatory, but just in case, here goes:

Coffee filters (we didn't have any, so we just cut round circles out of a crumpled piece of packing paper I found in one of my unpacked boxes. Yes, still a lot of unpacked boxes here.)
Watercolors
Clothes pins

Paint the circles with watercolors, allow to dry, then clip in the middle with a clothes pin. I used scotch tape to tape them to our playroom door, but I think these would make a cute mobile too. Hm....

Hello, Jackie!
Loved your post about Now vs. Then. That's right where I'm at! Trying to get life to some kind of normal while on furlough and having a new baby! I know you've been there!
Just wanted to let you know that I'm sending a little holiday care package to missionary mamas. If you're interested, come on over :)

the butterflies are nice but I'm drooling over your FLOOR TILES! They look hand stained and streaked. I LOVE them!
