Tie-Dye Survivor Party!
Our Tie-Dye Survivor party was a blast!
Our twin boys needed their sixth birthday occasion to have a Survivor theme (the CBS present). We (Mother and pop) determined it could be a fun theme for the games, so we agreed.
We determined to let the boys be group captains, they usually every selected a shade from the Dharma Trading Co. webpage fiber reactive dye shade chart. We dyed a “Survivor pack” for each attendee, together with a tie-dyed t-shirt, a bandana and a “loot” bag to maintain their prizes.
When every youngster arrived, we had them pick a workforce color from a basket. We chose a Survivor pack with their colour and wrote their identify on the prize bag with a Fabricolor Chisel tip marker. They had been requested to wear their shirts and/or their bandanas to indicate their group colors.
The “Survivors” competed in challenges as groups: Obstacle Course, Water Brigade, Jelly Belly Taste Test, Water Balloon Toss, and Balance Beam Stand-Off. At the tip of each game, every member of the winning crew obtained first choice of 1 “prize” from a giant bowl. Then the other workforce chose a prize also.
I did the complete dyeing course of in one afternoon, using old cat litter buckets (cleaned first!) and some provides and tub-dyeing instructions from Dharma. I accordian-folded every shirt and put rubber bands each two inches or so. Then I threw everything into the buckets. Tremendous straightforward. Here is my materials listing:
– Six buckets, two stirring poles (plastic)

Everybody had a blast – the children and the parents who determined to remain for the party. There was numerous cheering and team spirit. The “crew colours” facet was an actual treat – and all the kids obtained to take residence a social gathering favor bag with their identify on it and a tie-dyed t-shirt. Superior!

You will want willpower, skill, speed and agility.
You could be quick or tall – survivors of any size.
The crew that finishes first gets first decide of their prize.
2. Shut your eyes or depart them open, the subsequent sport is about style.
No dad and mom allowed – it might only go to their waist.
Test your data of candy, flavors and fruit.
One of the best guesses have first alternative from the loot.
3. You may have to run but keep a gentle hand,
As you work to maneuver water over land.
First to fill – first choice you get.
Both groups are prone to get wet!
4. Underhand or overhand, select your private model.
When you throw your projectiles, all the time remember to smile.
Take a toss, then give your group-mate a tag.
Those with the most might be first so as to add to their bag.
5. Keep your cool – and your balance – for your last challenge in the yard.
Who knew that standing still might actually be so onerous?
You’ll stand in line… then each will make a touchdown.
