Let your kids make a 4th of July shirt

Ok, forgive the pictures as these are 5 years old. :) These are some shirts that I made with my first 2. I did Kalla's (she was not quite a year old) and Z (he was almost 3) helped do his. Super simple to do with your kids.

You need a white tee, red and blue acrylic or fabric paints and some thick corrugated cardboard (from a packing box). To make the star stamp I used a star cookie cutter to trace a star on the cardboard. Make several and cut them out. Now peel one side of the cardboard to reveal the ribbed corrugated section in the middle. Pour your paints onto a paper plate to dip the stamps in. Lay shirt flat on table. Place a piece of cardboard in between the front and back side of the shirt so the paints don't bleed through to the back. Now press the stars down on the shirt. Do this all over as desired with both blue and red. Then let dry completely.

Here's little Miss Kalla in her shirt that year. It's hard to remember that she was that little...she's going to be 6 years old in a month!
Awwwww...... :)
