Tie Dyed Sun Catcher Eggs

Last summer at camp, my boys and I became hooked on tie dye!

March 21 126To create Tie Dyed Sun Catcher Eggs, you will need:

  • Paper towels
  • Mr. Sketch markers
  • A spray bottle filled with water
  • Rubber bands (optional)


1. Cut several paper towels into the shape of an egg.

2. Decorate the eggs with the markers by drawing stripes, polka dots, or funky designs on them. If you would like to, experiment with classic tie dye folds like the spiral and accordion. Use rubber bands to create white areas, if desired.
