The perfect tie dye crafts for this summer!
With summer on the way, these tie dye crafts are sure to help you get into the summer spirit. Tie-dying is very simple and easy to do with the kids, or even just for yourself. One highly recommended tie dye kit is this one, because the colors stay bold and bright even after multiple washes. Additionally, always be sure to use 100% cotton materials when tie dyeing, or else the colors will fade out after the first wash.
