Summer Bucket List Idea: Tie-Dye T-shirt


A summer MUST-Do activity in my book, is to Tie Dye something.

For us that meant making my son his very own Tie Dye Tshirt for the 4th of July!

I thought it would be fun to tie-dye a shirt this year.  I picked up a white sleeveless shirt at Walmart for $3-4 and a few days later we picked up some S.E.I brand tie dye spray.

Though it's still a few weeks out, Big Brother was SO excited about doing it that we've already made it.  He's worn his shirt several days in a row (and would keep doing so if I hadn't buried it in the dirty laundry!).

We also made a pillow case that turned out really cool, too.

Be prepared... tie-dye= big ol' MESS!  It was a lot of fun though!  I didn't buy gloves, so our hands were nice and colorful, too! 

Be sure to wash your tshirts in cold water before tie-dying!  Then, follow the directions on the package and have fun!

The shirt is on the right side and the yellow, blue, and red tie dye is a pillowcase!  That turned out super cool, too!
