Week 4

Spring 2 2024

Today Reception class investigated how to tie dye material.  We looked at how to make spirals, bubbles and stripes.  
The children voted which one they liked the best.  The spiral design won.

The children then drew their own T-shirt design - they had great fun and produced some wonderful designs.

We then dyed our own t-shirts.

We cannot wait to see the finished items.  We have to leave them for a few days for the dye to take and then we will give them a wash.
What will they look like?
