Let the kids create their own Tshirt designs this summer.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Cool DIY Fouth of July shirts that are easy to make with kids at home have been released on Kids Activities Blog. The Tshirt tutorial provides easy steps for kids to have fun painting Tshirts that end up looking fabulous.
Make the Fourth of July extra special this year by letting the kids make Tshirts. Place cardboard inside a white shirt and use masking tape to section off the star portion of the design. Then tape stripes on the Tshirt according to the template provided on Kids Activities Blog. Older kids will be able to put on the tape by themselves.
Use a craft sponge to dab on the paint. Dabbing makes a rustic look compared to regular painting. It is also good for sticker resist painting because it uses much less paint. After the paint has completely dried, pull the tape off and apply fresh tape around the star section. Fill in the star section with star stickers. Press down firmly all stickers so the paint cannot bleed under them. Dab with blue paint. Wait until dry and then remove the tape and star stickers. Removing the star stickers is especially fun. The design looks like a real flag now.
Another great Tshirt tutorial can turn into an art project that can be done over and over again. Simply find a coloring page the child would like to color. Cover the back of the coloring page completely with pencil rubbing. Tape the coloring page onto the Tshirt with the pencil rubbing face down. Use a ball point pen and press down firmly to trace the outlines of the coloring page. Remove the taped page and retrace the lines on the Tshirt with a black sharpie or fabric marker.
Now, the coloring page Tshirt is ready to go. If the child uses watercolors or washable markers to color the picture, the Tshirt can be colored over and over again after a wash.
