Here is a cheap art activity you can do with your kiddies and they will feel pretty proud of themselves doing it.
Pick up cheap cotton t-shirt. I picked this one up on clearance at Target for $1.73. Bargain!
Using a dressmaker’s pen, get your child to draw their t-shirt design onto the fabric.
After placing a piece of paper in between the shirt’s front and back, trace over your child’s drawing with laundry pen.
Wash the shirt to remove the dressmaker’s pen marks and its ready to wear.
You of course could skip a step and allow your child to use the laundry pen to draw the picture. Just be aware that there are no ‘do overs’ and that on some fabrics the pen can bleed quite easily.
To keep with our Under the Sea theme, Master O drew some sea animals – fish, jelly fish and sea urchins. So cute.
