A glue gun and a lacrosse stick 

Summer has just begun but my son is already thinking of things he can do/make to things around the house.  He saw a video on YouTube about customizing your lacrosse head and asked me if he could go to the store and get dye.  So we headed to Meijer and for a bottle of black RIT dye for his experiment.   

First he had to take his lacrosse head off his stick.  Then he used my hot glue gun and randomly put glue all over it.   

The we went and got the big pot of dye ready to submerse this into.  We brought water to a boil, added the black dye and then turned the heat off.  We put the lacrosse head into the pot and checked on it after 30 minutes.  It still looked greenish so we waited another 15 minutes and checked it again. We decided an hour was probably as good as it was going to get for his impatient self so we went ahead and took it out of the pot and rinsed it off.  

Brody started to take the hot glue off the head and you could see the color underneath the glue was still the old stick color and then black was over it.  It turned out pretty cool.  If we did it next time we’d add more glue so it was more color swirles but it still turned out awesome! Score one for his first summer project!
