As you all know, I have been trying to keep the kids busy and not bored. While I was at Wal-greens, (of all places) I came up with a project idea. They had t-shirts on sale for 2 bucks a piece. So I got everyone a white t-shirt and then went to Wal-mart and got some Rit dye. I bought orange, royal blue and purple. I got a bag of rubber bands and some rubber gloves.
I got home and told everyone we were going to tie dye t-shirts, the next day. Niko, (bless his heart) told me "we need to get Daddy to down load some 60's and 70's music on the computer, so we can play it while we dye our shirts. You know that's a hippy thing?" I chuckled and told him, yes I know, and that he could ask his Daddy to do that.
I had 5 t-shirts all together. That was enough for our 3 kids and me and 1 neighbor kid. Hubby had to run out and grab another one. They all turned out so great. after they all dried, the girls all wrote on each others shirt with a permanent marker.
We BBQ'd and roasted marshmallows afterwards. The kids went home Wednesday morning and Hubby and I were beat. We spent as much time with them as we possibly could. Thanks for all your prayers!
