What would a Tie-dye 4th of July be without tie-dyed t-shirts? In red, white, and blue, of course! We’re not reinventing the wheel here. We just bought a tie-dye kit and some plain white t-shirts from the local big box store and got to work.
Our kit did not call for the traditional soaking in soda ash, which made the process a little simpler. It also had great instructions for how to achieve some specific tie-dye looks. The fun is in the folding, gathering, and rubber-banding of the material. Get creative, and you’ll be pleased with the results. The great part is that there are no rules in tie-dye and kids dig it!
