We’ve been spending a lot of time outside making messy kids crafts the past few weeks because the Arizona weather has been perfect. We know those days won’t last long as summer is quickly approaching but for now, playtime and lunch in our backyard has been a favorite family activity. We took a break from messy play to work on a fun no mess kids craft to make mealtime fun. The easy tie dye napkins kids craft is made with rubbing alcohol and permanent markers. We recycled a t-shirt for the fabric and then my daughters ate Kidfresh meals from Kroger with eco-friendly packaging made from 100% recycled cardboard. Our oldest daughter was very excited about our recycling choices and I was happy knowing they were eating a lunch made with the help of a top chef and a pediatric nutritionist.
For a limited time at Kroger and Kroger family of stores you can save at least 15% off the everyday retail price of Kidfresh meals. We recently stocked up on little sister’s favorite meals for the days we are short on time. The frozen kids meals have no artificial ingredients and are made with up to 1/2 cup of hidden veggies. The convenience is great for our busiest days and I love knowing Kidfresh meals are a great sources of proteins, vitamins, calcium, iron, fiber, and more.
Tie Dye Napkins Kids Craft
- cotton fabric
- permanent markers
- rubbing alcohol
- craft dropper
Project tip: recycle a t-shirt for these easy tie dye napkins instead of purchasing fabric!
Color designs on fabric with permanent markers. My eight year old daughter enjoyed making intentional designs but our two year old daughter did more scribbling.
Use craft dropper to drop rubbing alcohol onto marker design on fabric. The design will change depending on the amount of alcohol used.
Allow fabric to dry then cut into squares for tie dye napkins. The cutting should be done by an older child with safety scissors or an adult.
Serve your child’s favorite Kidfresh meal with the tie dye napkins. Our two year old daughter is currently loving the Wagon Wheels Mac + Cheese and Mighty Meaty Chicken Meatballs.
Lunch tip: serve kids meals in fun ways for mealtime enthusiasm.
Our Arizona weather is soon going to be too warm to spend afternoons playing in the backyard so we are soaking up these perfect days. Kids crafts and lunch outside is our favorite way to spend weekend days. The short and clean ingredient lists lets me not feel guilty on those days when a much needed mom duty reprieve is necessary. Sometimes we just want to spend the day playing, not planning meals and cooking. Our daughters don’t mind that extra time together one bit.
Kidfresh meals are available in multi-serve varieties like Super Duper Chicken Nuggets, Mighty Meaty Chicken Meatballs and Fun-Tastic Fish Sticks. The single serve options include Wagon Wheels Mac + Cheese, Spaghetti Loops + Meat Sauce and Muy Cheesy Quesadillas. Favorite sides like Totally Rockin’ Tots and SuperBlastin’ Bites are great for pairing with meals too. Our local Kroger, Fry’s, had a great selection to stock up with the limited time 15% off sale.
Do you enjoy easy nutritious meals for your children after a fun day of family crafts together too?

That is a great activity to do with the kids. I would actually like to do this with my boys soon!
I have a 5 year old toddler and I’m always running out of ideas to do stuff with him. This is a great idea actually for summer break.
The chicken meatballs are a great idea! My 3yo keeps asking for meat because “meat makes me grow” and I’ve been trying to think of different meat options.
This is such a great idea – and such an easy method! I can’t wait to try this and the Kidfresh meals with my kiddos for the summer! #client
Ooo! Those meatballs sound delicious and the rye dye activitynsound like a fun thing to do!
It is so awesome to be able to make this with the kids! I love how easy it is to make as well. Tie dye napkins are perfect for parties!
I love the idea and I cant’ believe I never thought of making this with Madison before! It would be so much fun and I’m sure the kids had a blast making these.
Wow those napkins look so cool and such an easy (not so messy) craft for kids x
I’ve never tie dyed anything and I won’t have thought of napkins. This looks like a fun project to do with my nephews!
These tye dye napkins are adorable, fun for kids and probably fun for moms and dads alike too!
What fun napkins! My kids would love these, they love colourful projects and making their own tie dye napkins would be so fun!
These are so cute & so easy to make! They would make the perfect blog prop for photography – especially if someone’s blog is a combination of certain colour this would be so useful! x
I love this activity, might try on old jeans also. May not be the perfect napkins but will give fun familytime
What a fun craft and so much neater than when I did tie dye as a kid. I love how bright and colorful they are.
Ooh these are so fun! My kids would LOVE to help me make these. It might even encourage them to clean their face on their napkins rather than their shirts!
This looks like such a fun craft! My 3 year old is really into coloring lately and I think she would love this.
These napkins are so fun!! I am obsessed with how easy they are. This would be the perfect craft for little ones!
My nephew is really into tie-dye, and has made a lot of shirts using this method. I will have to mention this to him.
This looks adorable and like it would be so fun to make. I think I want to try this for when we go on our picnics.
these are really adorable. Do they hold up well to washing or do you need to set the color somehow?
Thank you. Because they are done with permanent markers, the color held well when we washed them. I wasn’t sure if the color would bleed so the first time I washed in the sink and lined dry. They’ve been fine in the washing machine ever since!
Thank you so much!
The napkins are a great idea. My granddaughters used this method on white canvas sneakers. Re: the chicken meatballs…..from the perspective of a grandma, the first thing I thought of when I saw one being fed to the child was that due to the shape, it might be a good idea to cut it in quarters to avoid any chance of choking. Of course, this would depend on the age and size of the child. Hope no one takes this as criticism. Just sharing from experience.
If we can figure out which markers hold the color best after washing, we are going to make napkins for a family reunion. I will make the names in bubble letters and the kids will color them. This is really affordable by using cheap sheets cut up with pinking shears, to prevent fraying.
