Making shirts with your kids is an excellent idea for a weekend project. If you want to break away from the usual handmade arts and crafts and macaroni art, try printing shirts with your kids and turn their creations into wearable art. Printing shirts is a rewarding activity, and a great way to show off your child's creativity. There are many ways that you can take on this fun weekend activity. You may even invite your kid's friends and turn the whole thing into a fun party, just be ready for the possible mess:
• Iron-on transfers – another no-mess way to print shirts with your kids is by using iron-on transfers. You can transfer your kid's own artwork, string words, or play around with graphics in a photo editor and have your designs printed on iron-on transfers, which you can then use to transfer the images onto the garment of your choice.
• Fabric pens and markers – you may also use fabric markers to draw on shirts. This is a good way to allow your kids to use their freehand to paint their own shirt directly. You will have to wait a certain amount of time and use hot iron to help the ink set, but this is often a quick process.
• Fabric painting – if you don't mind the mess, you may also allow your kid to use fabric paint to create their own art on shirts. This is a good way to make your child feel like a real artist, complete with brushes, rollers, homemade stamps, stencils, and even their own fingers.
• Silk screening – one of the simplest ways to create shirt designs that last, silk screen printing need not be so laborious. Professional printers use sophisticated techniques like photo emulsion, but you can always use simple stencils and other supplies that you can easily find at home to make this activity a success.
