middle school teens or high school teens or both?

I saw an article in family fun magazine while at the library today. I just tried looking it up on the web site and can't find the article. If I remember correctly you mix flour and water to the consistancy of mustard. Put the mixture in a sqeeze bottle. Take a t-shirt that has a piece of plastic in between the front and back (or something so that the front and back aren't touching). The kids then can make a design on the T. Then take dye in spray bottles and spray the shirt with the dye(s). Let the shirt "bake" so that the flour mixture is dry/hard. Wash shirt according to the dye instructions.

hope it helps.
