Kids Craft Ideas for Designing T-Shirts with Stencils

If you’re looking for great kids craft ideas that will keep those little creative minds busy, I’ve got one for you.

I planned this one for a Football Tailgating Party. You know, the adults hang out for hours anticipating a game. We cook and eat and drink and chat... But what about the kids? They’re bored! So, I made this fun arts and crafts for kids scheme with stencils and some inexpensive t-shirts and it was a hit. I put it all in a video to get you started quick because of course time is of essence, right?

I just can’t tell you enough how much the kids loved this. And really, we had to go to the store and buy more t-shirts because they ran out and still had more ideas flowing. They made me promise that we will do this for every game and now I’m the before game kids crafts planner. It’s OK because I don’t mind a bit. I think I had more fun than the kids but don’t tell anyone.

Don’t miss out on the Free Stencils that I used in the video. You can re-size them to whatever t-shirt size you are working with. And don’t forget to cover them with clear shelf liner before you cut out the openings so that you can use them again and again.
