Fish Stencil Crafts Project

Craft Activity

Our arts and crafts project will be to paint a fish on a t-shirt and/or tote bag using a stencil.

  • T-shirt/tote bag
  • stencil
  • fabric paint
  • paint brush or sponge brush
  • cardboard, oaktag, etc.

  • Place a piece of cardboard inside the T-shirt. (The fabric paint will probably bleed through the front of the shirt.)
  • Place the stencil on top of the shirt (or tote bag) in the desired location.
  • Use a paint brush or sponge brush to paint inside the stencil.
  • Remove the stencil carefully.
  • Leave the cardboard inside the shirt.
  • Move the shirt carefully to a place where it can dry for approximately 24 hours.
  • Have students put on the shirts and read some awesome fish books.
  • Put fish books in the fish tote bag for traveling to the beach, etc.


      Some good fish and ocean books for kids can be found here and here.

        The T-shirts, paint and other products can be bought at Michael's, A.C. Moore, or another crafts stores (T-shirts usually 2 for $5.00).
