Summer is quickly coming to an end I realize that this summer has been packed full of nonstop fun with the kids! Thanks to our summer fun list and all of the fun summertime activities we were never really at a loss for something to keep us busy. One of my favorite summertime activities to do with the kids is make tie-dye shirts. This is a little project that we have done every summer since they were very little, and it has become a super fun tradition! They love to create the shirts, and then they have a fun play ans sleep shirt to wear all summer long too! We also find it is a great way to spruce up faded white shirts, dingy onesies, and even socks that cold use some TLC. Turn drab white kids clothes into stuff that is fun to wear.
Finally, summer is here in all of it’s glory, and for this stay at home mom it is the absolute best time of the year! It means time with both my kids, the freedom to play all day, late nights, snuggles and sleeping in. I am relishing the opportunity to have my little lovlies with me all day again. Along with having them home all day comes the responsibility of keeping them busy, entertained, and creatively teaching them throughout the summer months. We use our summer fun list as a guideline for things we wan to do, explore, and learn more about each summer. Here is one of our summer fun activities that lets the kids get crafty and then wear their artwork proudly! A few supplies and a plain white shirt are all you to allow your kids to make their own play shirts for the summer!
Ever catch your child running around in a way too tight shirt that you know they dug out of the “too small” bin in the basement? They promptly tell you that the shirt fits just fine even though their belly is sticking out, and they can bearly fit their arms into the sleeves. You know those favorite shirts that they just can’t seem to get enough of! Here is a way that I have discovered to make those favorite shirts last just a little bit longer. Instead of packing them away or donating the kid’s favorite outgrown clothes I love to make them into little pillows that they can use for play. They are perfect for dolly cribs or for their favorite stuffed animals to use in their beds. They get to see their favorite shirt everyday and play with it too.
