Tie-dye Teddy Bears –

If you asked my boy his top 5 favorite things in the world, I can imagine it would look something like this:

1. Cars

2. Crafts

3. Stuffed Animals (particularly penguins)

4. Spending time with Mommy and Daddy

5. The Laundromat (a story for another time)

My boy loves his family time. He loves crafts. We have tubs of cars overflowing at our house. And we sleep with no less than four stuffed animals, including at least three penguins.

So, when I was looking for a craft for my next Crazy Crafts for Kids post, I was particularly inspired by my friend, Nicole from SAHM Reviews, and her latest craft:

Colorful Creations with Kool-Aid

The kids made their world a little more colorful as part of this compensated social shopper insights study for Collective Bias® and their client. #KoolAidBTRtour #shop Nobody ever said Kool-Aid was JUST for drinking!

If there’s one thing that I’m not, it’s creative. My daughters have to rely on their dad to do things that are crafty and fun. When I was young, I crocheted, did embroidery, cross stitch and all those types of activities but I have never been the person to draw or do the types of projects you see on Pinterest.

However, when I heard about a campaign with Kool-Aid and Big Time Rush, I decided I needed to harness whatever little creativity I did have so the girls and I could participate. Why? Because not only do my kids love Kool-Aid but they also love Big Time Rush. The chance to score Meet & Greet VIP passes for BTR by doing crafts stuff… that’s just cool.

Oh yeah… and they recently saw some friends sporting Kool-Aid dyed hair and thought that was cool.

I did some searching and found instructions for creating tie-dye projects using Kool-Aid. Sounded great. They have outgrown their tie-dyed shirts anyhow.

Of course, DH had a better idea…read more here!

Have you ever used Kool-Aid for crafts? I would love to see them!
