Flatten the coffee filters and stack them on top of each other. The number of filters you use will depend on the number of Lego figures you have. You’ll need one coffee filter per Lego figure.
Draw a design on only the top coffee filter using the markers.
Dip the paint brush in water and paint the water over the marker to blend the colors together. Allow the coffee filters to dry completely, then separate the filters.
Punch two holes in each side of each coffee filter. Cut two even pieces of string for each parachute. Each string should be around one foot long. Fold each string in half and thread each end through one hole on the side of the parachute. Repeat the process on the other side of the parachute.
Tie each string to the Lego figure’s arm.
To use the parachute, lightly toss the Lego figure into the air, making sure the parachute is open before you toss.
