How to throw a TIE DYE party!

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Last month, we hosted a fun tie dye party in our backyard for some super creative local high school girls. They had a blast making everything from shirts to shorts to socks. They tie dyed everything, including their hands! Here's a fun guide on how to throw a tie dye party of your own. Tie dye is a great team-building activity to do at slumber parties, birthday parties, and church and club events. Here's how you can plan to tie dye at your next event!
