So, I went to summer camp when I was growing up. I loved summer camp. One of my favorite things to do while at summer camp was hang out in the arts & crafts area and make… tie-dye! I tie-dyed everything: t-shirts, socks, bandanas, bags, even underwear. I loved not knowing how the final product would come out – working really hard on a design, and then slowly untying it to discover the pattern that my work and effort had created. So – for this month’s activity, harken back to the days of summer camp, and make some patriotic, red-white-and-blue, Fourth of July tie-dye!
