Tie-Dye Treat Cups

Tie-Dye Treat Cups craft

Kids create their own colorful, mess-free tie-dye treat cups at a family picnic or birthday party.

  • 1.

    Cover your work area with newspaper or work on a paper plate. Fold a coffee filter in half. Use Crayola® Markers to make colorful designs on the coffee filter. Move the marker slowly so the dye seeps through the back side.

  • 2.

    Unfold the filter. Spray with water. Cover wet filter with a dry paper towel and gently press to blot excess water. Dry.

  • 3.

    Place dry filter on top of a paper cup. Use Crayola Scissors to cut ribbon to tie around the cup. If you are age 3 or younger, ask an adult to cut the ribbon. Ask a partner to hold the tie-dye filter as you tie the ribbon in place.
