Turn a white T-shirt into a smock to protect clothing during creative – and messy – play!

CAUTION: Adult supervision is always recommended when creating these crafts. Please note that there may be small parts for some of the crafts that could be a choking hazard for children under three years of age and/or tools needing close adult supervision. Created crafts may not be intended for use as toys, and these should only be used with adult supervision by children under three years of age.

Children love any medium that helps them create, from pudding to finger paints, to markers and homemade dough. Protecting their clothing during art time can be easy by making a homemade smock out of a large T-shirt. And children will have a ball designing it!

You’ll need:

* T-shirt
* Piece of cardboard to fit inside shirt
* Puffy paints or other fabric paints
* Glitter
* Stencils and sponge shapes
* Paintbrush, optional

What To Do:

The next time your child is ready for some messy fun, he can proudly wear the art smock he created!
