Tie-dye packages for Vacation Care

Tie-dye has been around for years and was very popular in the 1960’s and 1970’s. It became popular as a cheap and accessible way to customise inexpensive T-shirts, singlets, dresses, jeans, army surplus clothing, and other garments into psychedelic creations. It has had a bit of a resurgence in recent years.

Make my Bear can now supply Tie-dye kits and plain white T-shirts. This is a great and engaging craft activity that children love.tie-dye kit

We have a range of tie-dye kits from Tulip in various colours. You could also use the tie-dye kits to dye the teddy bear T-shirts or other cotton articles such as pillow cases, calico bags etc. Apparently socks are very popular items to colour at the moment!

The children’s T-shirts we supply are good quality cotton (170 gsm) and they are available is ages 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12(small youth).

The Tulip kits are a one-step process and don’t require the t-shirts to be pre-soaked which is perfect for vacation care. The kits each have 5 different colours in ready to mix bottles/applicators. Each 5-colour kit will do approx 25 t-shirts .
