This months Craft Hub will see little ones make their own tye dye printed envelopes using nothing more than shaving foam and colours.  

Each child taking part in this craft will need:

A blank envelope
Shaving foam
Various Food Colours
Shallow baking tray/dish/plastic tub

You will also need a ruler and straw/pencil

This is a great project for children of all ages and will help with their coordination skills. 

You could also apply this technique to paper, creating a unique correspondence set - why not write a letter to someone special?

Enjoy!

Allow your child to select the colours they wish to use on their work. There is no right or wrong way of doing this part - just squirt or drop the colours on top of the shaving foam in any way you desire.
