TIE DYE TEE SHIRT FATHER’S DAY CARD:
- paper towels (choose a quality brand that stands up well to liquid)
- liquid watercolours (or food colouring diluted with a bit of water)
- small bowls or containers
- medicine droppers or pipettes
- white card stock
- plastic tablecloth to protect your work surface
DYE YOUR PAPER TOWELS
Start the kids off with some paper towels, medicine droppers and several small containers of liquid watercolours. You can dilute your watercolours with a dribble of water if you find that the colours are too intense.
Have the children drip the watercolours all over their paper towels.
Note: rather giving each child one dropper to dip in and out of all of the colours, assign one dropper for red, one dropper for green etc. This will prevent the colours from getting mixed together.
Set your coloured paper towel in the sun to dry completely, or give it a blast with a hair-dryer. Make sure it’s completely dry so the colour doesn’t bleed into the paper card.
