Show & Tell Friday -- Patriotic Tie Dye T-Shirts

We often get the children new flag shirts for the 4th of July but this year I thought it would be fun to have them make tie-dye t-shirts. We looked online for designs and ideas and they all agreed they liked a bulls-eye design. I bought white shirts and a tie-dye kit with an easy squirt bottle method. I don't know that this will be as long lasting of dye and the colors weren't as intense but it was easy and fun to do. I even let Missy do her own. The only thing they didn't like was waiting for the finished shirt which was 6 - 8 hours. They also would prefer a rainbow colored shirt but we'll save that for another day.

Pete and Re-Pete squirting the dye onto their shirts.

Even Missy could handle this and surprisingly with little mess.

The gang at the parade including my nephew who we also made a shirt for. We had quite a few comments that day -- I suppose we do anytime they are dressed alike.

For more Show & Tells visit Mary at Raising 4 Godly Men.

OK, it took me a minute to figure out just what those little guys (and gal) were doing. LOL

Oh, but the finished product looks adorable! Great idea!

Oh, I love the idea. I have never seen squirt bottles for tie dying. I have only seen the cumbersome method of boiling buckets of water-messy. You make it look easy and fun. I especially love the finished product. That is just cute.

That looks like a really fun project. They are tie dyed and they are still matching! The group photo is really great.
