Tie-dye t-shirt party fun for all

Some party activities are so timeless that people of all ages can enjoy them.

For instance, parents and their children can have fun creating their own tie-dye t-shirt at a party, though not without some prep work from the party planner.

First, it's important to create the dye beforehand since it needs time to cool. Mix 1/2 cup of liquid dye (one package of powered dye can work too) in 1 quart of hot water. Dissolve 5 tablespoons of table salt in the mixture and let it cool.

With the dye prepared, you can give your party goers their 100 percent white cotton shirts, which should be pre-washed. Using rubber bands, people should tie knots into the shirt. Twisting and folding the shirt can work well, provided the pattern you are creating is held in place.

Encourage people to be creative with their folds and knots, so that each shirt comes out differently.

Place the shirt in the dye for approximately 20 minutes. After that, rinse the shirt in cold water and unfold it. You may need to rinse again.

Think about playing some classic rock songs during the process to bring back that 60s atmosphere.
