I have 4 kids, ages 6, 4, 2 and 2. They loved doing this project.
It kept them busy for a few hours over the course of two days.
Here are a few pointers in working with the kids.
2: make one job into a lot of smaller tasks, to keep them occupied.
3: don't look for perfection
4: try not to worry about the mess.
5: the dye eventually washes off the skin.
6: make sure nobody gets hurt.
7: make sure everybody has fun.
Step 1: Gather supplies/ get kids ready.
You also need shirts. I got two five packs, one boy's, one men's. You can use old shirts, or get new ones. 100% cotton works best. We also dyed 2 pairs of socks and a pair of undies.
You also will need:
- a bucket
- zip lock bags
Our kit came with a DVD on how to tie-dye. I put this on for the kids while i gathered the supplies. They had fun watching the dvd to get ideas.
