Firework "Tie Dye" Shirts

Can't believe the 4th of July is just two days away, but there is still time to make these awesome Firework "Tie Dye" Shirts!! This year my eldest son helped me make some fun firework "tie dye" shirts for the 4th of July. This was such an easy project and my 3 year old got to do the majority of the work all by himself with just supervision to make sure he didn't color anywhere but on the t-shirts.

We used one t-shirt and one onsie for little brother. The t-shirt we picked up at Walmart for about $3 and the onsie we already had on hand. We also already had the Sharpie Markers and rubbing alcohol.

What you will need to make this project:
Permanent Markers (in red and blue),
Rubbing Alcohol,
Piece of cardboard or styrofoam (Something to stick inside the shirt to keep the marker colors from soaking into the back of the shirt.)

You can make fireworks by putting straight lines coming out from a center or by doing lots of dots (I like the straight line fireworks best but my son liked making dots).

When you're done drawing on the fireworks it's time to pour or spray the rubbing alcohol onto the shirt, trying to hit the center of your fireworks so the fireworks get bigger as the rubbing alcohol spreads from  the center to the ends.

Allow the shirt to dry (completely) then hand wash before wearing.

Happy Independence Day!!
