Tie-Dye Stingrays

Tie-Dye Stingrays craft

Stingrays gracefully glide through water like flying carpets. Gather friends at a picnic table to create lots of friendly tie-dyed stingrays!

  • 1.

    Color your stingrays. Cover your craft area with newspaper. Tear a coffee filter into thirds (or have an adult cut it). On each piece, design a stingray with Crayola® Washable Markers. Dampen the coffee filters by either spraying or sprinkling them with water. The washable marker colors will spread to create a tie-dyed look. Air-dry your stingrays.

  • 2.

    Draw the ocean. On white paper, use your imagination to draw a bold underwater scene. Leave space for your stingrays to swim. When the coffee filters are dry, accordion-fold the stingrays and then open them. Use a Crayola Glue Stick on the outer corners of each stingray to glue them into your underwater scene.

    Share the fun! Add eyes and a squiggly tail to each stingray. Show your friends how to make these cool creatures.
