Does anyone have a suggestion as to what brand non toxic dyes are best
that do not have to be set by using hot water to use with elementary
level students when tie dying T shirts? Also, tips for doing this with
kids. I want to tye dye extra large T shirts to use as paint shirt cover
ups in the art room.
Just a thought on missing supplies: I have locks on all my cupboards
except one that is for teaachers to borrow from, substitutes, scouts,
etc. In that one I keep supplies that are older or donated that I
wouldn't feel so bad about if they are not kept in great shape. If a
child borrows an eraser have you tried having them put their shoe in a
laundry basket until they return it. Keep it by the door in case of a
fire drill. Also, I have 4 kids at each table with 1 child a supervisor
who at the end of art makes sure there are 4 scissors, 4 erasers, etc
left. If that table does no have all supplies at the end of art they
stay until they find it, or the lose the privelege of having those
supplies for the rest of the roatation through art until it is found.
They need to bring their own scissors if they were short a pair of
scissors etc. to class. Kind of tough love but often it works.
