Are you looking for ideas to entertain the kids during summer break? Or perhaps a great birthday theme party for teens?
A tie-dye theme party is both a fun way to decorate and embellish your party, but also offers young guests a chance to get creative with the tie-dye shirt activity it's inspired by.
We recommend hosting a tie-dye theme party for older elementary-age kids and pre-teens.
Although it's perfect for someone's birthday, we also love the idea of hosting tie-dye parties simply as neighborhood socials. They're fun, interactive and don't require a ton of prep or supplies.
We've put together some easy theme ideas to incorporate into tie-dye party food and decor, but we've also got the essential how-to for the tie dye activity itself.
This will be so much fun parents may want to dye their own t-shirts too!
What is the best way to generate excitement for you party? Send your guests an invitation that will peak their interest and get them excited about what's to come!
Our idea here was to print out an invitation with all the important information for our party, and cut it in the shape of a hang tag.
Using a safety pin and thin piece of ribbon, we attached the tag invitation to a plain white t-shirt that the guest will bring with them to tie dye at the party.
These invitations can either be hand delivered or sent in a mailer package via USPS.
Though it would be less of a cost for you to ask guests to bring a white t-shirt, rather than provide one, if you can add the extra touch to this invite, go for it.
The kids will get that much more psyched for the party. Plus, packages of tees are pretty affordable!
