Tie Dye Mania!

I decided to tie dye shirts with my first grade class for Field Day this year. However, I really didn't want to do the traditional dip-the-shirt-in-a-bucket thing, because I just knew it would be too much for the kids. I had seen a spray-and-tumble tie dye at Hobby Lobby a few months ago, and I thought I would give that a shot.

Before I tried it with a slew of six and seven-year-olds, I did a dry run on one two-year-old... Katie Anne. We tie dyed a shirt for her first to see how it would come out, and how kid-friendly the project was. She loved it, and the shirt turned out really cute. So, I did the project with my class on Monday. Now, we're all ready for Field Day!

Here are some pictures of the project...

I'll be honest, this has nothing to do with your latest post, but I saw the nice marketing piece for Black Oak, Inc. Quite impressive. If you go to www.blackoakam.com, under events calendar you will pictures of all 5 foursomes.

Thanks again!

The spray is SUCH a great idea. We did the real thing at one of Stephanie Tustian's birthday parties in middle school, and they were so messy! Yours turned out super cute. I loved seeing the whole class's all lined up together!
