Now that it's early June, school will be out soon and kids all over the country will head to summer camp and spend quality time outdoors. Along with clothing, bedding and other gear, you're going to have to personalize a few of your child's belongings to ensure that it doesn't get mixed up with another camper's stuff. Even something as banal as a laundry bag will need a bit of sprucing up, but instead of simply writing your child's name on the side, you can tie-dye the bag with a series of colorful shades that will make it much harder for him or her to lose while at camp.
Whether you're using an empty pillow case or a full-fledged laundry bag, you can decorate it quite easly using a Tulip® Super Big™ One-Step Tie-Dye Kit™. This is meant for larger pieces like bags and tapestries, and comes with a variety of compelling colors that can jazz up the look of your child's laundry bag, as well as many other garments in his or her wardrobe. By combining a series of your child's favorite colors, you can create a dynamic addition to his or her camping gear that friends are sure to notice.
Of course, just because your child will have a tie-dye laundry bag doesn't mean that the personalization process is complete. Using Tulip Soft® Fabric Paint in conjunction with Tulip® Multi-Surface Stencils™, you can write your child's name, cabin number and any other relevant information on the side with using these simple stencils. This will ensure that your child never loses track of his or her laundry bag around camp and will give it a personalized touch that will make it truly unique.
Your child is only going to be home for a few more weeks before heading to camp, so why not try out this engaging craft project before leaving? This will be a great activity for a summer day and will ensure that your child will be able to keep track of many of his or her most important supplies at camp. Best of all, your kid can continue to use the bag for years to come and it will become a fixture of your family's camping supplies for the forseeable future.
