I'm not sure what Dylon Cold Dyes are but I have done tye-dying w/ grades
K-5 and have a few pointers. We did our dying outside to cut down on
cleaning and otherwise reduce the risk of disaster. We put the dye in
lrg plastic squeeze bottles w/ spouts so kids could easily squirt desired
amount in desired location on shirt. After kids dyed their shirts we put
them in labeled plastic bags. Kids had great time dying and really cute
shirts. Hope this helps, L
