The summer is winding down, and I am realizing that we didn't do half of the activities that we had planned and I am starting to feel bad about it.
So when I found some sandpaper, and white t-shirts at the dollar store (for a grand total of $3) I was very excited!
Today, we spent the afternoon making fun crayon/ sandpaper t-shirts.
Here are the designs that the kids came up with....
If you would like to try this project for yourself, grab some sandpaper and crayons and create a picture on the sandpaper pressing your crayons down very hard (be careful because they break easily, and a word to the wise, crayola really does work best, it isn't worth it to try and cut corners with cheap crayons!).
When you're finished with your creation, place it face down on a t-shirt with a paper towel on the top and iron (on high) for about a minute and a half.
When you take the sandpaper and towel away, you have your fun, totally personalized t-shirt!
Just remember that if you are making letters to draw them backwords and also write the words backwards...as if you are making it to read in a mirror.
I love that one of my kids is so art minded, and the other, totally sports!
You can't tell which one is which, can you?
