My kids have been wanting to tie-dye shirts for a long time, so when we sat down as a family to make our Summer Bucket List we put this down as a must do for this summer. I was always really nervous about tie-dying with small kids (messy!), but we picked up this Tulip brand tie-dye kit from Michaels Stores and it was beyond helpful!
In the kit you get gloves, rubber bands, tons of different colored dyes and a guide to show you all the different ways you can twist your shirts (with the provided rubber bands) to create different patterns on your shirt. Since we were doing this with a large group of younger kids ,we all did a simple twist with our shirts. We started with a pinch in the middle and twisted the shirt from the middle going out.
The directions stated to fill water to the shown line and shake it well with the powder.
We had 10 kiddos making shirts! The adults twisted the shirts for them, but the kids went to town putting the dye all over the shirts. It did get a little messy, so I recommend doing this outside. But they had so much fun!
My youngest having a blast. 🙂
These are my kids’ final products! I love how they are all three so different! They are so proud of their shirts and beg to wear them all the time!
Have you tie-dyed anything other than shirts? I’d love to know!
