The boys and I made a fun Father’s Day shirt for my father-in-law (we would have made him a mosaic birdbath like we did for my dad, but it would have cost about a zillion dollars to ship it!) using this great idea we saw over at I Am Momma – Hear Me Roar! We’ve done lots of freezer paper stenciling before, but I never thought of using the technique to transfer the kids’ art on to shirts.
My boys loved the result (though it came out a little crooked, but that’s what happens when you have preschoolers “helping” to lay it all out!), and they’re now wanting to make artwork shirts for themselves too!
They collaborated on the shirt design since neither one of them were feeling exceptionally crafty at the time. Sawyer said “I’ll draw a picture of Grandpa, and Sutton can do the words.” Sutton eagerly agreed since he’s BIG on writing letters and numbers these days, but he’s far less interested in drawing actual pictures. I did manage to get him to draw a little heart to add to it though. 🙂
I like to call this “Anatomy of a Kids’ Drawing” so that Grandma can help translate it all to Grandpa 😉
Happy Father’s Day!
