Mothers day shirt for kids to make

Last week I posted about a cute Mother’s Day flower pot for a child to make (you can find it here).  Tonight I realized that I really need to post about this cute Mother’s Day shirt as well.  This was also made for me by my daughter, with the help of our child care provider (have you noticed that she’s awesome?).  She gave it to me two years ago on Mother’s Day, and I still wear it all the time.  I always tell my daughter that it’s my favorite shirt.

To make this adorable shirt, you need the following items: green fabric paint, yellow fabric paint, red fabric paint, 3 paper plates, a plain t-shirt, and a cute little child :)


First, you pour one color of paint on one paper plate, and repeat for the other two colors of paint, so that they are all on separate plates.  Next, help press the child’s feet into the green paint and “stamp” the shirt with her footprints.  Then paint the green flower stem on the shirt, and the red center of the flower.  Next, help the child press her hands into the yellow paint and “stamp” her hands to make the flower petals.  Finally, using the puff paint, write “#1 Mom” on the top of the shirt, and the child’s name and year on the bottom.

Once the paint is dry, the shirt is ready to be given as a gift that will be treasured for years.
