25 Days of Christmas -- Day 11: Crafty Clothes

My friend Stacy issued a "25 Days of Christmas" challenge.
To participate, post 25 ways you celebrate the Christmas season.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, we invited our neighborhood friend Sarah in and the kids made holiday tees. We used solid colored tee-shirts and various shades of fabric paints and markers to achieve the look.

The girls wanted reindeer on their shirts, so we stamped them with painted feet and hands. Then they decorated them with hearts and lights and gave them names like Rudolpha and Pepperoni. Bub said he was too ticklish to have paint applied to his body, so he painted a snowman on his shirt. The misplaced purple package is a clever cover up for a painting mishap -- a big, brown glob that looked remarkably like reindeer poop.
