This Kool-Aid tie-dye activity may send you back to the 60's. But did you know that tie-dye techniques date back to Pre-Columbian times, and Peru in 500-800 A.D.? Shibori is another form of tie-dye that originated in Japan in the 8th century. The wonderful colors and designs of this method have intrigued many generations across many cultures but can be made easily and with simple household ingredients. The finished homemade tie-dye shirts are sure to impress and make great gifts for friends and family. This kid-friendly activity never gets old (unlike your bell-bottoms)!
