Tie Dyed Undershirt?

Every month… we… that work at the YMCA Adult Day Program have to come up with an activity… to do with the Adults that attend…

We are given free rein on what we decide to do… and the director buys us the supplies…
Each week a different worker does their idea with the others helping…

I made Strawberry Banana Smoothies one day

… and they went over really well…

I had several of the adults help with this… and they were more than willing…

Adding 1/2 banana

1 cup strawberries

1/2 cup apple juice

2 scoops vanilla ice cream and some ice…

Blended in a blender… then poured into small cups…

Something most could do with little help…

The other day we tie-dyed T-Shirts 51i4B0SDa6L__SP160,160,0,T_ that each of the adults had brought in…

I asked William if he had brought a shirt… and he said, “No, I forgot”… and rolled off in his wheelchair

We used tie-dye kits for the paint…51LGC4FsqYL__AA160_51mLfM7BRLL__AA160_

As I was helping with one of the other adults pick the colors they wanted… We were letting them pick 3… William asks me, “Will this shirt do?”… It was a sleeveless undershirt  k8043145 … I said, “Yes”…wondering where he got this shirt???… because he had said he didn’t bring one… and then it dawned on me… He had went to the bathroom and taken off his undershirt… because he wanted to do the tie-dye so bad!…

We giggled and then reassured him that he didn’t have to use his undershirt… That we had brought a few extras… and he would get one!… k6484610

He is so sweet… and was so happy!… 140314_014

and we thought pretty smart to figure out the dilemma he had found himself in…

We got all of the shirts done in an hour… and rinsed out later that afternoon…

This is the one I did for me on a pale yellow shirt…

Front and back are dyed at the same time the way the shirt is twisted and tied with rubber bands

They were washed in cold water and will be given out next Monday when they dry…

They looked great!…
