Matching T-Shirts

1.8 based on 4 ratings

What You Need:

  • Light-colored t-shirt in your child's size
  • Light-colored t-shirt in Dad's size
  • Cardboard
  • Fabric paint or fabric markers
  • Paint brushes or squeeze bottles

What You Do:

  1. Lay the child-sized t-shirt on a flat work surface. Place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt so the fabric paint won't bleed through to the back side.
  2. If your fabric paint doesn't come in squeeze bottles, pour it into empty ones. Another option is to pour the fabric paint into small, shallow containers to use with paint brushes.
  3. On the front of the shirt, ask your child to use the fabric paint to create a picture of herself and her father.
  4. If desired, she can write the names of each person above the drawing, and add other decorations or embellishments.
  5. Set the t-shirt aside to dry.
  6. Lay the adult-sized t-shirt on a flat work surface, place the cardboard inside, and have her create a similar picture on the shirt for Dad. Set aside to dry.
  7. When both shirts are dry, wrap them together and present to Dad with love!
