Our tie dye lesson is formulated to enable kids to express their freedom and their individuality, using dyes and different materials to create masterpieces. A kid’s tie dye set is bound to bring out your child’s wonder and smiles as they create a personalised, unique masterpiece that inspires.

A full learning experience

Your child will learn how to colour match, create new colours through the blending of existing colours and use their dexterity skills by tying areas of the fabric to create swirls where the dye cannot reach.

FAQs

Is tie dye safe for children?

Absolutely. All of the dyes provided in our kid’s tie dye set are non-toxic and safe for children to use. With your supervision, your child will be creating safely with an activity that does not involve sharp implements or any materials which can be hazardous to them.

What fabrics can I tie dye?

Cotton is super absorbent, which makes it the ideal choice for projects using our tie dye kits for children. The dye will take very well to any cotton item you would like to vitalise via the effects of creative tie dying. Silk is a popular alternative — however, specific silk dyes would need to be used to ensure your creation is successful.

What fabrics should not be tie dyed?

Synthetic fabrics such as rayon and viscose should be avoided, as should fabrics that combine these fibres with natural fibres such as cotton/viscose. 100% natural fabrics such as cotton are ideal. Synthetic fabrics do not hold dyes well when processed through the tie dye method.

Do I need to pre-wash my items before dyeing?

Ideally, you should wash your items before using our tie dye kit for kids so that you can work with damp fabric. This makes it easier for the dyes to penetrate. Dry material can work effectively as well. Just make sure that if it is a brand new item, it is washed first to remove any residual finishes from the manufacturer that may block the dye from penetrating.

How long do I have to wait for my tie dye project to set?

Most items will “set” within 24 hours. You need to keep the ties in place to ensure the colours do not run, and you can leave your item in a plastic bag to optimise the results. Once the dye has set, you are then ready to remove the ties. Rinse off as much excess dye as possible, hang it to dry, and enjoy the artistic outcomes from our children’s tie dye kit. There is no need to wash your item before use — however, the rinsing process is an absolute must!

Will tie dye projects stay colourful after washing?

Hand washing will keep your colours brighter for longer. However, there is no harm in using a machine to wash your tie dye item. A newly dyed item can release some dye in the first few washes, just as new clothing does. Make sure for the first few washes you do not include other items in the same wash that may become discoloured. Another tip to keep your colours bright is to hang your item inside out, so the sun does not bleach them.

Can I save dye to use for another day?

Absolutely. Each dye container is resealable and can be used whenever you choose to embark on another creative journey. As long as the container is properly sealed, you should have no issue with revisiting tie dyeing at a later date, ensuring you get the full benefit of our tie dye kits for children.
