How to Tie Dye Shirts with Water Guns
Last week I had my teen girls Bible Study class over for some fun…if you saw my story on Instagram I asked you all if you thought I was crazy…but we made tie-dye shirts using water guns. Talk about a blast and a new twist to tie-dye t shirts!
Materials you need to make Tie Dye T Shirts with Water Guns
- T-Shirt for each participant
- Different size water guns
- Tie Dye Kit
- Gloves (extra gloves even though the kit comes with some!)
- Rope/Clothes pins to hang up t shirts.
I saw this tie die with water guns activity on Skip to my Lou and she suggested putting wax paper in between the t shirts – but said that didn’t work so well…I saw where someone suggested putting cardboard between the shirts…well we opted out of both! I don’t know if it was a good idea but I don’t know that it was necessarily a bad idea either – that we opted out.
How to Make Tie Dye T-Shirts with Water Guns
- Wash and Dry your t-shirts prior to making them tie dye.
- Hang each t-shirt up on clothes line/rope with clothes pins.
- Put on GLOVES! Some of the girls thought they didn’t need to…others were smart!!
- Follow your directions on your tie-dye kit to mix up your dye and water.
- Put one mix of dye in squirt gun or water gun.
- Start spraying on your t-shirt and have fun!
- Let your t-shirt fully dry.
We loved how easy and fun this activity was! A perfect tween or teen activity for sure! All of their t shirts were so colorful and different which I loved!
Get a variety of different water guns…they all created a different look to the tie-dye which made it super fun.
