Tie Dyed T-shirts

The bookmobile came on Monday. We had a great time tie-dyeing our t-shirts. Ginny made sure to bring vibrant colors for us to use.



The first picture is Ira's shirt. It will have lots of bull's-eyes. The next is an example of a swirl. Then there is Marie's big patriotic bull's eye.


It was hard waiting 24 hours before being able to take off the rubber bands. The kids were oohing and aahing over their shirts.


Mr. Ira used yellow and green to match his John Deere tractor pj bottoms.


Laura's swirly t-shirt.


Debbie's bright colors.


Abby has to have yellow in there somewhere!


Sara wanted patriotic colors.


Marie's bull's eye turned out great!


Eve used the turquoise blue to make sure her shirt turned out nice and bright.

I'm so thrilled to find your blog. We are an LDS homeschooling family in Missouri. I am so pleased to find your book lists. I have been asking around for good read-aloud books for the children this year. My oldest two are school age - 1st grade and Kindergarten. Come visit our blog sometime.
