Tie Dye Exploration

The Butterflies explored creating tie dye. 

They watched a video on the Ipad to see that information can be retrieved from computers and watched how it is done. 

Once they had seen it first hand they started to take part in their own. 

They used fine motor skills to handle pippets with skill and suck up the coloured water. 

They strengthened hand muscles by squeezing and releasing the pippet onto the fabric. 

The children talked about the colours and what might happen when the colours mix. 

The fabric absorbed the water and the children learnt new vocabulary. 

The children watched in awe and wonder as the ties were undone and the children could see the marks made.
