Tie Dye Badge and Badge-Pinning Ceremony

We met at a park for our monthly Quest Club meeting on Tuesday. Nine families participated--29 people including two guests--in two tie dye projects and our first quarterly badge-pinning ceremony.

Badge recipients.
After chanting the club's motto ("Ask anything, explore everything!") and roll call, we conducted the badge-pinning ceremony. Donning homemade sashes, members filed up to have their earned badges pinned to sashes of a variety of colors.

Tie dying.
Then members began working on their tie dye badge. They were able to tie dye an item they brought with us or "tie dye" coffee filters. This is done by laying a paper coffee filter flat, decorating it with washable markers, spritzing it with a few sprays of water and letting it dry. The water made the ink run and created an effect similar to tie dying. It was windy, so they used rocks to hold down the coffee filters.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, July 19, and we will be working on our Drawing Badge.
