in the words of martha
wet, wild, and, yes, a little messy, tie-dyeing is the perfect way to keep kids entertained on a summer day. even adults will appreciate that moment of anticipation just before the unraveling of rubber bands reveals their own vibrant creations. it’s no wonder tie-dyeing never goes out of fashion… i’d forgotten how simple the technique is. it requires minimal equipment and supplies that are available at any supermarket or hardware store. we set out bowls of rubber bands, clothespins, and marbles and experimented with many expressive patterns. the kids were thrilled with the results — and the youngsters in your life will be as well.
