Many projects call for paint and even when the kids help bake, they tend to get something on their clothes. Create less laundry for yourself and make some cute craft smocks for each child! Collect some large t-shirts (maybe Daddy’s old shirts) and make a project out of it. This is just one idea for you to start with, but see what else you can do for this fun and useful craft! The picture here is of an adult sized shirt my daughter tie-dyed with some college kids last summer.
- Old shirts (t-shirts or even long-sleeved old work shirts)
- Puffy paint
- Round up enough shirts for each child. Make 2 or 3 extra so that you have some for your guests.
- Cut pieces of cardboard to fit inside each shirt. This just creates a harder surface and helps the marker not bleed through the shirt
- Start decorating! Write each child’s name or simply make it colorful with fun designs!
