Spring Break, day 2

Tie-dye, biking, and playing so long in the woods that Bandaids were needed when they came home.


We dyed a pair of pink shorts, a pink tank top, and used Tulip dye in Violet (who knew I would wind up with a stash of tie-dye supplies?).  Tie them up with rubber bands,
 Dump them, stirring around occasionally (this big blue spoon was permanently discolored from last summer's tie dye fun),


Wait for about 15 minutes, or until you can't wait any more,



It helps if a new Justice for Girls catalog arrives,


Rinse a lot, remove the rubber bands, rinse some more, and Ta da!


For more on tie-dye, take a look at the tie-dye posts over at the Sm'Arties blog.  It is a lot easier doing tie-dye with 2 10-year-olds in March than doing tie-dye with almost 50 4-16-year-olds in August!

Sounds like fun! And looks like spring break weather is perfect, too. We are going on a mini spring break this weekend - camping at Richard B. Russell State Park. We will be in the tent this time, and it's been YEARS since we've tent camped, so it will be interesting! Blessings, Becky

Looks fun. What a great Mama you are! We really enjoyed learning how to tie dye with you in S'marties. Hoping to do some of that this summer.
