Hair dye options for 6 yo? (PIOG)

My 6yo is having "Suess Week" and Thursday is Dr Suess Crazy Hair day. I would like to put blue color in her hair but don't want the harsh chemical dyes. The spray cans that you can find at Party City or Walmart during Halloween fade out within an hour of spraying. I've heard that Kool-Aid works but am not sure how to use it.

Any other mom's done something with your kids' hair?

Blonde or brunette? Kool-aid if done right can last a couple weeks or more exspecially with blondes. There are some really good YouTube videos to show you how to do it.

Chalk works very well and usually washes out fairly quickly.

Please note...if you use something that can last a couple of weeks, your child may have issues with the school's dress code.  A lot of them state the hair has to be back to the normal color by the next day. Depending on how long her hair is, you may want to do strange twisting of her hair into shapes.???

I'm assuming this isn't sidewalk chalk?

yes, sidewalk chalk.  Get the hair damp and rub chalk on the hair.

I think people used to use that. But I think they make chalk now for hair. Check out stores( my guess would be target or walmart etc ) in the hair stuff department. Or maybe even ask a salon. If you can't find it in stores.
