Easy ‘Tie Dye’ the Kids can do!

Items Needed:
Sharpie Markers
White T-Shirt
Bowl (any size)
rubbing alcohol 

1. First you will need to decide where you would like your tie dye to be located on the t-shirt. Then place that spot over a bowl and use a rubber band to hold the shirt in place. This will also stretch the shirt allowing a nice canvas to easily draw on.

2. Let the kids draw away! Anything they like!

After the kids have finished up their artwork on the t-shirts you will then take rubbing alcohol and lightly pour the alcohol over the drawing. It is easiest to do this in a bottle with an applicator tip. But if you don’t have one that is okay as well…

The rubbing alcohol will then let the colors bleed out making if kind of a fun tie dye effect the kids will love! – Next let dry!

That’s it! Now your kids have  a new cool shirt to wear!….I have never washed these shirts to I am not sure it will stay..we just do it for the fun of it!

    I love easy ways to make over or redo a plain ol shirt. Fun for adults too. And not as messy as regular tie die.

    What a fun rainy day activity! Or for that matter here a really hot day activity! I think this is a lot of fun, I wonder how it would work and look with outlined hand prints? I am thinking a Father’s Day gift perhaps ~ I have most of the things needed! I love that!
