to do right after a play date, camp
or vacation? It’s a tough question
to answer sometimes. I
remember the vague expression,
“go play” uttered by my parents
time after time when I was a child.
Those two words worked for me.
There are some parents
who are just better able to come
up with ideas off of the top of their heads. . . or so
it seems. What’s their secret? Do they know something you don’t. The answer is
yes. They’ve been checking out t-shirt activities for every budget like these
For Boys and Girls
1.Nature T-Shirts or Crayon Transfer T-Shirts I can always count on Family Fun’s website when my kids gets bored. Make a nature t-shirt using items from the great outdoors or create your own designs with crayons. Get special materials from the craft store to transfer the designs to your t-shirt.
2. Car Shirt and Activity in One This shirt will get a great return on investment. You can actually play with the shirt when you are not wearing it. Check out this car shirt and activity in one by Lemon Squeezy Home’s website.
3. Simple Painted T-Shirt Activity If you have a t-shirt and some fabric paint lying around, this painted t-shirt project may be for you. There is a free tutorial video for making an alligator on a t-shirt from Activity TV.
For Crafters Big and Small
4. Turn T-Shirts into Jewelry Turn old t-shirts into jewelry. These braided t-shirt bracelets by Henry Happened are all the rage. My oldest daughter is the type that has to be constantly busy. This is wonderful for those times when you have to cook, clean or you just need them to stay occupied while taking a break from their overused gadgets.
5. Make a Rainbow T-Shirt I love parties with a theme. The themes don’t alway have to be specific like Spiderman or Hello Kitty. More general themes, like carnivals or rainbows, are just as cool. This rainbow t-shirt got the whole family involved for blog owner, creative-food.blogspot.com who ordinarily showcases her talent with food.

7. Make Your Own T-Shirts Online If you like to be artsy without getting messy, you should make your own t-shirts here with Zazzle. I took a picture of my daughter hand making the thumbs up sign (see picture at the top). I uploaded the image, then typed underneath with tools that Zazzle provides. She’s definitely daddy’s little girl and announces it on her shirt, “I like Daddy.” We became an affiliate of Zazzle. I told her if anyone buys the shirt, she can have the money since she was my hand model.
8. What’s Old is New Again Get inspiration from popular shirts. I like the vintage t-shirts on Zazzle. I am hoping to make one of those myself.
