Very little preparation was involved other than purchasing: red and blue dye, white t-shirts and rubberbands. We did the activity outside on the lawn on a dollar store table cloth.
The girls simply created their design with the use of rubberbands then used the dye to create colors. We put each shirt in a plastic grocery bag so they could take them home and let them sit. We also gave them strict instructions to let them rest overnight, then to wash them alone.
|The idea for this activity originally came from I Love to Create Blog, so this photo is from that site. We used a different technique, but I wanted to give proper photo credit.|
We used sheets folded into squares then volleyed waterballoons back and forth. So simple! No net necessary. Plus, it provided lots of laughter! And teamwork ;)
