Happy Valentine’s Day friends, I hope you are surrounded by love today. As a Valentine’s Day treat I helped my girls make sharpie tye dye heart shirts. It was a so much fun! I love how clean and easy it was as a morning project for a sweet holiday.
All you need is:
Poster board or cardboard to slide inside the shirt so it won’t leak through
Sharpies (we used red and black)
It’s super easy just slide the poster board in and let the kids draw black and red hearts all over!
Then I taped the poster board to a hanger and hung the shirts on our pantry door so the kids could spray them with the rubbing alcohol.
They thought it was amazing how the colors bled. The thick red sharpie bled hot pink and the thin red sharpie bled red into a yellow color!
The girls were so proud of designing their own shirts and it was a perfect craft for my 4 and 5 year olds to do today! Here they are modeling them 🙂
I did set the ink with my iron when they were dry so the color would stay. I will probably still wash them separately the first time just in case though. Super easy and super fun, thanks for stopping by!
Bella looks like a model.
What a good idea I am so doing this with my boys
I can see my friend’s daughter doing this with her 4 little ones – all under 6! She’s an awesome mommy and is always doing great crafts with her kids (also a stay at home mom). I gotta share this on Facebook so she can find it.
