Summer Fun – Tie Dye T-shirts With The Kids

Summer is quickly coming to an end I realize that this summer has been packed full of nonstop fun with the kids!  Thanks to our summer fun list and all of the fun summertime activities we were never really at a  loss for something to keep us busy.  One of my favorite summertime activities to do with the kids is make tie-dye shirts.  This is a little project that we have done every summer since they were very little, and it has become a super fun tradition!  They love to create the shirts, and then they have a fun play ans sleep shirt to wear all summer long too!  We also find it is a great way to spruce up faded white shirts, dingy onesies, and even socks that cold use some TLC.  Turn drab white kids clothes into stuff that is fun to wear.

Make Your Own Personalized Photo Christmas Ornaments
