Toddlers do T-Shirts

I suppose it’s time to stop calling my newly-3-year-old a toddler, but he was still 2 when we did this project, so it’s allowable for this project. Hmph.

This is an easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy project, but one that your wee one will be so proud of. At this age, they remember when they make things, they like to show you what they’ve made, and they can wear their project! So cool.

Here’s what ya need:

1. T-shirt

2. Fabric markers



Sit child in chair. Place piece of cardboard or a magazine inside of the shirt so marker doesn’t bleed through to back. Let child have at it. Wash and dry.
