Happy Monday! This week's craft takes minutes, and costs nothing. Yes! That is my kind of crafting! It also brings up an important topic with your kiddos... recycling. Getting creative with something old is a wonderful way to recycle. Rummage through some colorful old t-shirts, and grab your scissors. This afternoon, we are becoming superheroes! BOOM!
First, use chalk to draw out lines on the back of your shirt, and around the neckline where you will cut. WHACK!
Next, cut along the sides and those chalk lines. Be careful not to stretch the jersey or the edges will curl. BAM!
Now, find the longest length in your remaining fabric, and chalk out a strip for the mask. We used the design from the front of the shirt to create some interest. You can also use the design on the cape instead! SWISH!
Cut out the mask, and chalk and cut the eye-holes as well. Tip: it's easier to cut circles if you fold them in half. BANG!
You could stop here, or take it to the next level with a little fabric paint and a sponge.
My daughter came up with a clever super hero name, The Galigator! So, we picked a green shirt, and I cut a sponge into a triangle so she could stamp spikes down the back. It may help to mark out the design in chalk first to keep things straight. SPLAT!
Let the paint dry, and your imagination run wild! You are brave, and strong, and bright! KA-POW!
Thanks for joining us! See you next Monday for another fun project. We would love to see your little superheroes in action, so tag us on Instagram! @etsydallas #EDCreativityCamp
