We’re making our own fireworks this Fourth of July… on our t-shirts that is!
Ages ago Travis and I made toddler tie-dye, and the method for this shirt is a variation on the idea. Except now Travis can design with much more intention.
First, place a piece of cardboard inside a plain white t-shirt.
Use permanent markers (such as sharpies) in blue and red to draw asterisk shapes on the shirt. This design was a bit over Travis’s head, but he enjoyed scribbling with the sharpies.
Use an eye dropper (great for building those little finger muscles!) to drop a few drops of alcohol onto each colored portion of the shirt. The colors will bleed out into “fireworks” and sparkles. Travis had incredible concentration and determination as he dripped the alcohol over each line of marker.
Let dry completely before wearing.
