I don’t know about you, but we always have baby wipes around the house. My kids are out of diapers, but I still carry some in my purse and have some handy in our vehicles! I always wondered, back in the day, why my mom and dad always seemed to have wipes handy. Now I know!! Kids are messy!
This craft is super easy and good fun! I think they could have sat and done it all afternoon! Why not, nothing else to do in this monster heat wave outside!
I got this idea from Make and Takes. Here is the link: http://www.makeandtakes.com/summer-camp-for-kids-tie-dye-baby-wipes
I didn’t have any Kool-aid on hand so we used food coloring and water instead. Works just the same, I assume.
I let the kids fold up the wipes how they wanted them to be folded.
Then they used a clothespin to keep it together. What’s next? Start dipping!
Then when they were done dying them, I unfolded it! They got really excited to see what it looked like!
I did most of the work for them. I let them fold and dye them, but besides that, I did most of it! Didn’t want food coloring all over the place! We managed to keep the mess low, but still had fun!
I put them outside to dry. It’s 110 out! They should dry fast! They were very proud of their work! Such a fun easy activity!
