This Tie Dye Party is part of the Tie Dye Your Summer campaign with Tulip® and Blueprint Social. The opinions and party ideas are my own.
I’ve been dying (See what I did there?) to do work on this party for the kids. How often is it okay for a tiny human to let loose with paint without any repercussions? Okay, fine. What I mean is… how often does that happen in our home?
TYE DYE PARTY FOOD:
This is not the party plan to follow if you are looking for healthy. Unless, of course, you are looking for good, healthy fun. With this party, my only mission was unapologetic fun. And sugar.
So much sugar.
I made marshmallows bars with Trix cereal.
We had colorful sugar cookies.
And I finished off the treats with the ever popular fruit snack.
The water bottles were wrapped with a paint splatter duct tape.
And we traded the traditional table and chairs for a cozy picnic blanket.
TIE DYE PARTY DECORATIONS:
I knew I was throwing a tie dye party, but the decorations didn’t come together until I found these amazing paint cans. I was meant to go shopping that day. Some call it fate.
I call it fuel for my ridiculous shopping habits.
I filled one paint can with tie dye napkins and a hodge podge of colorful cutlery.
I dressed up one activity table with colorful flowers.
And I made a teepee. For real. I made a teepee because who wouldn’t want one? I mean, c’mon… it’s a teepee.
I want a teepee.
TIE DYE PARTY ACTIVITIES:
I had two paint themed activities for the kids because I wasn’t sure how the tie dye would go over with toddlers.
Spoiler. My clothes made it the entire party without any battle wounds.
TIE DYE STATION:
The Tulip® One-Step Tie-Dye Kit® came with everything we needed to tie dye our white shirts.
We put our gloves on.
I let Michael pick out his colors. (red, blue, and pink)
And he made a shirt only a mother could love. It was perfect. The kit made the entire process so easy!
PAINT SPLATTER STATION:
Once we were done making shirts, we moved on to the paint splatter station. Now, the kids didn’t know what tie dye meant, but they understood when I said they could throw paint at a canvas.
I filled <clean> eggs with washable paint.
And tried my best to keep Michael entertained while he
not so patiently waited for Leah.
The kids are still too young to give the eggs a hard enough chuck, so there was a bit of pouring going on, but it worked.
I consider this a mission accomplished.
Mission accomplished sans dyed hands.
DO A GIRL A FAVOR AND PIN THIS TIE DYE PARTY!
