As I stated in an earlier post today, we have been super busy this summer! One of the things that I absolutely had to make time for, though, was a "Tie-dye Playdate" for Maggie's friends! (To be honest, I think the moms were more excited than the kids, and we ended up doing all the work, but everyone had a good time because we were among friends.) Here are some photos to inspire you so you can have your own tie-dye day!
For a snack, I made these "Tie-dye Cupcakes," using boxed cake mix, made according to the box's directions, separated, and colored. Once I had six bowls of colored batter, I spooned different colors into these awesome cupcake liners I found, baked, and once cooled, topped with vanilla frosting. Yum!
Then, we all headed to Susie's for some tie-dying fun!
Olivia came already dressed the part! :)
Lucy dove right in! (I think eight years is a great starting age for this activity. The younger kids weren't as interested.)
We got Elliott's expert help on our shirt-twisting! :)
Olivia, waiting to pick her colors for her shirt! :)
Hannah, working on Liam's shirt.
Anna, tying a dress.
Maggie's completed shirts, drying on the counter!
Have a groovy day! :)
