Have the kids in your class mark the end of summer with
this fun project…
You’ll need a white, 100 percent cotton T-shirt for each child,
washable white glue, cold water dye, a spray bottle, thick-bristle
paintbrushes, newspaper, and optional latex gloves.
Place several layers of newspaper inside the T-shirts. Mix the
dye colors according to the package instructions, and fill the
spray bottles with different colors.
Using simple, broad strokes, have kids use glue to “paint” a
basic drawing on their T-shirts that symbolizes their favorite
thing about summer. Allow the glue to dry on the front before
decorating the back of the T-shirt.
Once the glue dries completely, take the shirts outside. Have
kids spray their entire shirts (you may want to include latex
gloves for this part of the activity) on the front and back with
the dye. Allow the shirts to dry overnight, and wash the shirts
according to the dye instructions to set the dye.
