House paint turns a T-shirt into something cool with the around the house kids' T-shirt decorating project. Your T-shirt will be more personalized if you use the paint colors from your own house!

What You'll Need:

  • White T-shirt
  • Newspaper
  • Large plastic bag
  • Sponges
  • Blunt scissors
  • Water-based house paint
  • Clean foam food tray (from fruits or vegetables only)
  • Scrap paper

How to make the around the house kids' T-shirt:

Step 1: Place your T-shirt over spread-out newspaper. Put a large plastic bag inside the shirt, between the back and front.

Step 2: To paint your shirt, make some printing stamps using sponges. Cut sponges in the shape of a star, crescent moon, and sun. Put some house paint in the foam tray and dip a damp sponge in the paint.

Dab off the excess paint on scrap paper. Now print your design on the shirt, covering any existing house-paint stains. Let the paint dry completely.

Tie-dyeing is a classic way to jazz up a plain white T-shirt. Learn more about this kids' T-shirt decorating technique in the next section.
