玉ねぎの皮での布染め。輪ゴムで縛って液につけ、広げるときれいな色と模様に!
ハンカチ結びやハンカチ落とし、ハンカチでお人形の服作りなど、遊び方もいろいろです。 寒~いミシガンでは、
濡らして振り回すと、ご覧の通り、凍ってしまいます!
Kids dyed their own cloth using onion skins. First, they tied with rubber bands, then soaked in a special liquid.
They were happy to see them change their color and patterns!
We enjoyed tying everywhere, playing games and making doll’s dresses with them (and watching them freeze in the cold winter air!).
