Tie dye created by Kindergarteners and 4th graders. This project is so easy and so much fun. I first tried this lesson using news print paper. The results were still great, but that slight grey color of the paper really muddied the colors. I happened to have 500 industrial size coffee filters. They are cheap, bright white and absorbent so the colors are really saturated and mixed nicely. I showed the students how to fold to get a sunburst design. We folded them in half. Then we put our finger in the middle of the straight side and folded the paper like pizza slices. Our finger helped the point of our slices to be in the same place each fold. One we folded small enough to only have one pizza slice we folded them any way we wanted. Rubber banded them and then dipped them in different colors. We unfolded ours while they were still wet. With 4th grade I encouraged them to fold in any way they wanted to get different results. Like you see in the bottom left project. So beautiful!
