7 Fun Tie-Dye Crafts Your Kids Will Love ...


I know what you’re thinking, “Are tie-dye crafts still cool?”.

Well, last month while I was watching the hit ABC show Revenge, I noticed that one of the actresses was wearing a tie-dye dress, so this craft is not just cool, but it has turned couture as well!

Who knows, maybe one of your kid’s tie-dye crafts will be on the runway someday!

1. Tie-Dye Coffee Filter

Tie-Dye Coffee Filter

This is probably one of the easiest tie-dye crafts to try with your kids, and I can’t believe I’m just learning about it now!

No need to get messy with dyes and food coloring (though they are coming later), all you need for this craft project is a few coffee filters, water based markers, and water!

Before you start with the coloring, cut them into fun shapes for the season or holiday you are celebrating: leaves for the fall, snowflakes for the winter, or flowers for springtime.

2. Tie-Dye Shoe

There are tons of tie-dye t-shirt projects on pinterest, but what about tie-dying your shoes?

This is a really great way for kids to feel like they have a one of a kind pair that everyone at school will be asking about.

There are tutorials using tie-dye kits, but I actually found one that uses the same trick as the coffee filters, curiouslycreatingit.blogspot.com, For this DIY you’ll need a white, canvas pair of shoes, water based markers, and water.

Don’t be afraid to get creative and mix fun colors together for a funky look!

3. Tie-Dye Easter Eggs

Tie-Dye Easter Eggs

My girls love getting creative with their eggs for Easter, so I just couldn’t pass up on sharing this tie-dye idea for your kids!

For this DIY, you will need to wear gloves so you don’t come in contact with the food coloring that is used.

So, are you wondering how it’s done?

The trick is to wrap your egg with a paper towel (one layer around the egg) and put drops of food coloring all around it (allowing the dye to soak through the paper towel), then unwrap the egg, let it dry, and watch as your kids’ work of art comes to life!2
