Both Hot and Cool

September 14, 2011

Peter’s preschool gets a late start, so of course he has been asking every day since everyone else started when he would get a chance. Fortunately, the time is now. His school provides a bag to each student and asks them to decorate the bag.

I asked Peter what he wanted on his bag, and his reply was: fire. Okay.

Since I have no real artistic skill, I bought some dye and the kids seemed to think that was fun enough. I have not dyed anything since…girls camp? Yeah…it’s been a while. Fortunately, it’s not rocket science.

I was pleased with the outcome. Oh yeah, and Peter was, too. A friend embroidered his names on, but I’m guessing this bag is going to be easy enough to spot on the preschool row of pegs.

    Very nice. And firey. Peter is already setting trends.

      Indeed; today was it’s maiden run and it was a big hit. We got lots of comments. Plus, they pick up their bags from a laundry basket at pick-up time, and they all look the same from that vantage point. Except Peter’s–it was a snap to find.

    Love it. Great idea, and it turned out really well. I have not braved tie dye. Maybe I’ll add that to my list for next summer.
