Tie Dye

The children are such crafters. They love to make, bake, mold, color, build, paint if the can craft it, they will. Tie Dying sounded like such a perfect and fun activity for the children. I was always hesitant because of the mess of the dyes. But at our wonderful craft store I found a tie dye kit that was self contained! No dipping in different buckets. No paint everywhere it is all done in 1 container. Okay I still put down a protective cover over the table just in case.
We soaked the shirts in a solution, wrapped them in rubber bands, stuffed them in the tube and the dying begun.
We then let the shirts soak over night. It was so much fun all 3 boys enjoyed it and are very proud of the finished creation. Now white shirts are on the shopping list.
