Home / Children / Our Tie Dye Experience


Who doesn’t love a personally designed Tie Dyed T-Shirt?! Making a Tie Dye Shirt was on my daughter’s wish list for summer activities. So we grabbed a white t-shirt for my 2 youngest and a white pillowcase for my 10 year old.

Our tie dye experience

Let the fun begin!

    • Soak the shirts
      We soaked the 3 items in a sink of water/soda ash mixture. (It says to use gloves and a mask for safety).
    • Use rubberbands
      You can make special designs or just randomly band them on the shirt or case.

  • Paint them with dye.
    The dye will stain the hands if you don’t use gloves.¬† It didn’t stay on very long – only about 24 hours!

    • Let them sit in a ziploc bag for 4-24 hours.
      Use a sharpie marker to identify the different shirts if they are similar.

    • Wash in a load by themselves
    • Enjoy!
