Rippling Marker Colors

Rippling Marker Colors craft

Children dive into this easy but fun ripple project without splashing a drop of water. They create an eye-catching picture in the process.

    With a Crayola Washable Marker, draw a line across the top, all the way from one side of the paper to the other. No matter how hard you try to do a straight line, your line will be a little wavy—which is what you want! Those little bumps will become your ripples.

    Draw another line, as close as you can, to the first line you drew. Try to make your line follow the first one. Exactly where it goes up, let your second line go up. Where it goes down, let your second line go down. Fill the whole page with lines like this. If you take your time, and keep your lines close, you'll create ocean-like ripples without getting wet!

    For even more adventures, color the spaces between the lines in different colors. Try light next to dark, or mix them up, to create different effects.
