Tie-Dye Party Supplies

Although tie-dye parties are easy to host, you’ll still need to thoroughly plan out the event. One aspect of your event to put thought into is your supplies. For a tie-dye party, you’ll want:

  • T-shirts
  • Dye
  • Squeeze bottles
  • Soda ash
  • Buckets
  • Tables
  • Table covers
  • Rubber bands
  • Zip bags
  • Markers
  • Gloves
  • Aprons
  • Water
  • Paper towels

You can simplify things for yourself by purchasing tie-dye kits for your event, as they will have many of these items and save you the trouble of buying them all individually. However, when buying your tie-dye supplies, consider what type of dye you’re purchasing. Many tie-dyes only work on cotton, in which case, you’ll also need to purchase cotton t-shirts to ensure that the dyes stay.

Additional Activities for Tie-Dye Parties

Since tie-dying doesn’t take a long time, you’ll want to offer additional activities at your tie-dye party to ensure that attendees stay. This will also give you another opportunity to raise funds. Some popular activities you can offer include:

  • Concessions stand. When you’re standing outdoors dying shirts and socks, you might get a little thirsty or hungry. A concessions stand is the perfect way to satisfy your attendees’ cravings and raise some extra money.
  • Raffles. You can include tie-dye-related prizes in your raffle, such as tie-dye kits for the winner to use at home. Or, you can include general crowd-pleasing prizes such as gift cards.
  • Party games. Popular party games include tag, twister, duck duck goose, and cornhole. Engage your attendees with extra games to keep them having a fun time.

Aside from these activities, ask yourself what other offerings would keep attendees engaged. Creating a fun experience will help your fundraising efforts and establish positive relationships with your community.

What Organizations Should Host a Tie-Dye Party?

Tie-dye parties are a popular event for individuals of all ages, but they are most appealing to children and young adults. These events allow attendees to get creative and messy, and allow them to go home with a fun souvenir. So, the organizations that would most benefit from hosting a tie-dye party include:

  • Clubs
  • Nonprofits
  • Schools and colleges
  • Sports teams
  • Fraternities and sororities

Even if your organization doesn’t fall on this list, consider whether or not your members would enjoy this event. If you think that they would, then don’t be scared to give it a try!
