Father’s Day t-shirt instructions

Once you’ve gathered the materials, it’s simple to make the shirt. Here’s what you do….

1. Tape the outside borders of the t-shirt.

2. Add any accent tape inside the border. You can get creative and spell out Dad's name, or make any shape you want with the tape.

3. To make sure the art stays contained within the area, wrap the t-shirt around an old square of cardboard.

4. Let your child color or paint a special picture especially for dad.

5. When they're finished, carefully pull off the tape to reveal the design! If you're working with paint, wait for the paint to dry before removing the tape.
