We have some dear friends who have 4 little boys. The oldest has always been enthralled with firefighters- like so many other boys before him! Kelsey designed a T-shirt to look like the real firefighter's outift that he got to try on at one point. The metalic silver and glow-in-the-dark-yellow help to add to the novelty of this design. A simple project that is bound to bring a smile to any boy's face!
- Tshirt in a tan color [Kelsey ended up dyeing hers using Rit dye. Follow the instructions on the box of dye!]
- Fabric paint: bright yellow, metallic silver, and glow in the dark
- Masking tape
- Cardboard Tshirt form or newspaper
Start by measuring off the areas on the t-shirt that will be yellow- 2 three-inch strips that are 5inches apart. Line those areas with masking tape to help contain the paint. This is a fast way to create straight lines without handpainting the edges. These stripes go around the entire shirt.
Gift this to your favorite 5 year old- or gift it to ten of them! And watch the room light up. Then turn off the light, and watch it light up even more in the dark!
We just had to add on this $3 brand-new find at Goodwill!
Uh oh, now the 1-year old needs a T-shirt....
