Pink for Boys

Sean's class has been focusing on colors this month. Every day they have to wear a certain color shirt to school, the same color for two days in a row. Monday & Tuesday's color is pink. I spent waaaay too much time searching for pink shirts for boys over the last couple of weeks. Nothing. Finally I decided to tie-dye a couple of shirts with a little pink on them and call it good.

Of course, I waited until today to do it even though I've had the supplies for the past week. In fact, I am still in the process of running them through the wash cycles now. I made two shirts for Sean, one is pink, purple and blue and the other is pink and green. Of course, I made one for Aidan as well, he loves pink.

I couldn't go through all the time and trouble for just three shirts, so I decided to dye Sean's prefold diapers as well. Now he has 2 orange, 2 purple, 2 green and 2 tie-dye diapers. Silly, I know, since they just get covered with a cover anyway, but cute nonetheless.

I couldn't find my rubber kitchen gloves (Sean has a habit of stealing them to wear around the house & who knows where they are now) so I also dyed my hands a bit. :)

I will add a pic of the colorful project when they are done drying.

At least my son will have a chance to point out his pink shirt on Monday.

Edited to add a photo! Sean is wearing one of the shirts today, but here is the rest. The shirt in the foreground is Sean's shirt for tomorrow. Doug is not so crazy about the 3 bullseye targets. Hey, it's supposed to be fun, right? The orange & green tye dyed diaper is fugly! Good thing he's just going to poop on it.

You should post a picture!! I like tye-dye. I could do it well back when I was a teenager (we did it in one of my classes). I tried it twice this summer with the kids and neither turned out that great. I'm not sure what I did wrong.

My nephew (he's 3) LOVES pink and has so much pink stuff it is crazy!

Ok, I looked for an email link but didn't see one. Would you please email me and let me know how your shirts turned out so well!??
