Once I became a mom, I found that there are a million ways to use baby wipes that have nothing to do with wiping bottoms. :)
We recently discovered that baby wipes can be great for art! We used them to make some SUPER easy tie dye art with baby wipes that can easily be done with kids of all ages. No need to worry about stains and permanently dyed fingers…everything is completely washable!
We especially love Huggies Wipes from Walmart for this project! Huggies Triple Clean layers are thick and hold up much better than other wipes we’ve tried.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Baby Wipes
- Washable Markers and/or Liquid Watercolors
- Paper towels
1. Pinch the center of the baby wipe and hold in your hand.
3. Carefully attach a few rubber bands and have your child use a marker to color the sections of the baby wipe. The more that the marker gets into the folds, the more vibrant the color will be. You can also use your liquid watercolors to gently drip color onto the sectioned wipe. Just make sure you do it over the sink. I found this made for a more richer color.
Continue using other colors of markers to complete the tie dye baby wipe. Not pictured: Remove the rubber bands, gently unfold the baby wipe and lay on top of two pieces of paper towel until it has completely dried.
Use the tie dye baby wipes for any number of projects, including a SUPER EASY tie dye bunting!
Last but not least, wipe up any stray marks with your remaining Huggies® Wipes. In what other art project can you use your canvas to clean up your mess?!?!
