Second Annual Homeschool Tie-Dye

It was overcast, cold and windy. We were all in short sleeves and shorts, but we had a blast tie-dying yesterday. These are our creations. Check out some of our friends here! I'll update with more links if they get blogged. Here's another link!

A huge thanks to Kit for making it all happen (again) and to Grace for setting up the order. Can't wait to see everyone's designs!


  1. Those are really cute! It's been so long since I've done a project like that. I think I need to run out and purchase some dye.

  2. Can't wait to see yours Grace!

    Bleu- Thanks! Gosh, we had so much fun yesterday. It was pandemonium and chaos, colors were everywhere. If you do it, make sure you post! I'd love to see what you end up with :)

  3. What a cool idea. We haven't tie-dyed since my son was 2. I think it might be time to do it once more.

  4. I was happy to discover your blog today. I was unable to find a contact link. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

    I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in Raising Three Thinkers. If you are interested in hosting a giveaway of a SpellQuizzer license I'd be happy to supply a free license to the winner. You can learn more about the program at There's a video demo you can watch at and a community site where SpellQuizzer users can share their spelling lists with one another ( Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

    Thank you very much!
