Cotton Square Tie-Dye Art

Cotton Square Tie-Dye Art

My daughter loves to paint so we mixed it up by trying eye droppers instead of paint brushes, colored water instead of paint, and cotton squares instead of paper!

Ages:
2 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. cotton squares (5-6)
  2. water
  3. food coloring
  4. eye dropper
  1. We began by laying out cotton squares on a plate. If you don't have cotton squares, you could use paper towels instead! Next, I filled some bowls with water and food coloring and gave my daughter an eye dropper.

  2. She set to work right away squeezing the colors.

  3. She liked to name the colors as she went. She wasn't interested in mixing up the colors a lot and that was okay.

  4. They turned out so pretty! When finished, put them aside to dry and enjoy!
