Every year we like to create personalized T-shirts for Canada Day. It gives the kids a sense of pride and ownership when they decorate their own t-shirt. There are so many fun ways to make a one-of-a-kind Canada Day shirt. How about this Canada Day Pocket T, this Canada Day Tie T or simply using your child’s hand print as the maple leaf in the center of the flag?
This year I had the kids paint their own Canada flags. We used Tulip fabric paint and Tulip fabric markers which can be found at Walmart or Michaels.
I sketched the outline of a flag onto the front of each t-shirt and had the kids “colour” it in.
Isaiah chose to paint a blue flag.
While Cameron went with the more traditional red colour. He also added the word “Canada” all around he t-shirt. Very personalized to say the least!
The boys couldn’t wait to wear their creations.
They wore their Canada Day T-shirts to preschool the very next day.
Do you have any crafty Canada Day traditions?
Purchased these shirts a few weeks ago. They have been in the wash and have held up well. Inexpensive but well made T shirts. I recommend Tie dye CD100Y Cotton
