I babysit a few kids a couple days a week and every Summer we try to come up with a fun activity to do.
This Summer they wanted to tie-dye shirts, but due to the vary ages I didn't want to mess with buckets of dyes, salts and all the other mess associated with tie-dying.
So with the idea spark from a good friend of my Holly Hox and a little browsing through Hobby Lobby.
We started with plain white T-shirts and Elmer's glue. Because Elmer's glue is washable you can draw a picture onto your T-shirt and it will block the dye from coloring the T-shirt.
For Bergen's shirt I drew a butterfly...and after the Elmer's glue had dried completely I pulled out the tumble dry that I bought from Hobby Lobby.
Then I washed the shirts in warm water and dried them on low...and behold you will have a butterfly t-shirt with a cool tie-dye twist!
This shirt is perfect for any little diva!
**Side note on time -- depending on how much Elmer's glue your little ones use it can take awhile for the glue to dry, if you need to speed things up we put them out in the sun and even used a blow dryer!**
Some of us even turned our shirts out to have a cute patriotic twist! I loved them all!
