She’s a kindergartner and her teacher is very creative. She teaches kids colors by having a [color] day: on a Red day the kids have to wear something red and bring a red item to show to the class. It was a Purple day. And it fell on a Tie-Dye day for the whole school and as you have already guessed, kids had to wear a tie-dye piece of clothing. Although our teacher sent home a note that the kids could wear either something purple or tie-dye, if they choose, my daughter was quite adamant to pick between themes. I knew I needed to come up with something because chances to have something purple and tie-dye were slimmer than her waist!
I have to say I enjoyed the experiment probably more than my daughter enjoyed her new favorite t-shirt. Next day, I went on a rampage through my kids’ closet to find stained colored cotton shirts to repeat the process again and again and again... you get the idea!
