How to host a tie-dyed birthday party?
If you want an excellent birthday party idea, how about a hog tie-dyed good time? Tie-dye was all the rage back in the 1960s and is making a comeback. This is a party that will be appropriate for kids and adults. If you have a party that will include boys and girls, this is a great possibility to consider for party entertainment.
A Tie Dye Party Activities
First of all, the 1960s produced some excellent music that makes the perfect backdrop for your tie-dying and other activities. You do not need to limit your artistic flair to shirts in this instance; however, be sure to have plenty of paper, paint, pens, pencils, and crayons around to keep the artistic bent up and running throughout the entire party. If you have a swimming pool, it might be a good idea to let everyone play in the pool while the shirts are set or pursue some other sort of fun activity in the meantime, such as a movie or another craft project.
One excellent craft project would be a groovy photo frame for each guest to place a picture of himself or herself wearing their tie-dyed creation with the birthday girl or boy. It's a great keepsake and will pass a little of the time during the party. You could also have them work on a scrapbook of the party and allow each one to take one home with them (this is often more appealing to the girls than the guys) or hand paint headbands or bandanas to match their tie-dyed tees.
A Tie Dye party, music & food
We've discussed the activities and the music, now let's discuss the menu. You can make a tie-dyed tee-shirt cake if you are feeling quite ambitious, or get one from your favourite local bakery if you are good at describing what you want and place your order far enough ahead of time. You can have fun allowing each guest to create their psychedelic pizza. You would make the dough, of course, and will enable them to decorate the pizza with sauce, veggies, pepperoni, or ham. It's a lot of fun, good food and something that will make the party unique. You will also want to have plenty of suitable snack foods on hands such as chips, sausage rolls, pigs in blankets, sloppy Joes, fruits, cake, and groovy chocolate chip cookies if you want to be the grooviest mom of the day.
Keep it safe
Be sure to play good music and laugh a lot. You should also get photographs of all party guests in their works of art, a pair of jeans, and bare feet. It will be a fantastic memory and a lot of fun. This is an excellent party to have in almost any season (minus the pool in winter in most locations) and any location. Be careful, though, as you are working with dye. You want to make sure that the area you are working in is well ventilated and that you protect your flooring and any furniture (clear plastic drop cloths work wonders for protecting floors and furniture from dye and paint).
This is the type of party that is a great deal of fun for you as the parent and for all the kids that are invited. Everyone gets to take a little something cool home with them, and they get to work with their hands and imaginations to create something unique that is all their own. As far as parties go, this is one of the coolest to have, especially for those hard to impress and please teenagers that seem to take over our beautiful babies after about 13 years though it is suitable for younger kids.
