I was attracted by this video on the Rainbow Tie Dye shoes. Of course this is very novel for me makin tie dye shoe. I've tried making tie dye shirts as school activity before but this is the first time to see a tie dye shoes project. This is a clever idea. I am thinking of this a a fun activity to do at a kid's party where they get to bring home those newly-tie dyed shoes. Thanks for this fun activity for the kids.
