Let kids show off their artistic skills and design their own t-shirts with this fun and easy project. Tips for success:

  • All cotton fabrics will work, but the results are better with a 50/50 blend.
  • When the shirt is ready to wash, launder using regular detergent and hot water. Launder separately and avoid using bleach.

Tools:

50/50 cotton or polyester blend T-shirt
