Easy Tie Dye T-shirts are a fun and easy group art project. One of the most important things to instill in our children is a feeling of social connection. Once your child has learned to communicate, to take turns and to co-regulate, it is important to experience shared enjoyment. Play dates are a wonderful way to build social connections. For the child that is easily overwhelmed you can keep the group small and the length of time short. This activity is fun for most kids and easy to do. After they have made their creations they can wear them and remember how fun it was to be with their friends. This activity has the added benefit of working on fine motor skills
- Shared enjoyment
- Fine motor
- Sharpie Markers
- Rubbing alcohol
- Eye droppers

1. Stretch the t-shirt over the piece of cardboard. You can use clips to keep the t-shirt from moving.
2. With the sharpie markers make dots to outline whatever shape or letter that you want to make or design.
3. Use the eye droppers to drop the rubbing alcohol on the sharpie dots. Watch the colors spread! The more alcohol that you use the more the colors will spread.
4. Let the t-shirt dry thoroughly. Then wash and dry as you normally would.
