A homeschooling friend of mine hosts a creative playdate each Wednesday afternoon and invites a bunch of other moms and kids to join the fun. Some of the activities have included jewelry making, cake decorating, painting, crescent pizzas and games, and today...T-shirt decorating.
The kids really enjoyed this because it really wasn't messy. Caleb does NOT enjoy getting dirty in any way, shape, or form. My friend found some really cool transfer papers that the kids drew all over using oil crayons. Once they finished their artwork, the adults just ironed it on and they turned out great! It doesn't have that bubbly iron-on look...it just looks screen printed onto the shirts. My boys gave it two thumbs up.
Here is us working on our masterpieces
And here is their works of art
And here are the kids' finished pieces (including my two boys on the far left, front and back row)
I even made one for a bib for my friend's daughter.
This is just an easy, fun, non-messy activitiy even for little kids. We could make shirts, bibs, aprons, hand towels, hats, tote bags, pot holders....the possibilities are endless!
