Tie Dye with Sharpies

 I did this lesson with my special needs kids on Tuesday and decided Gracie would also have fun with it. We put a cardboard in the shirts and then a plastic cup. With a rubber band around the top of the cup, she used a Sharpie to color the shirt. When rubbing alcohol is added with a dropper, the ink spreads and looks like tie dye. Just keep moving the cup around to make a complete shirt. Gracie loved it and started a second shirt too.

 Adding the rubbing alcohol.

Her first completed shirt. Yeah, it's a little big, but Momma made her one her size, and hers was made from leftover shirts that I bought for my students.

P.S. Don't you love my kids' gallery in the background? Our dining room is so artistic!
