oh, I just have to share this….

When trying to think of something fun and different to put in our kids’ Easter baskets, I came across some colorful T-shirts at an outlet store.  At $2 each the price was certainly right.   But I wanted to add some personality to them.  I’ve always loved the neat shirts that Christian Book Distributors sells, but the price is far beyond my per-kid budget for Easter.  So I got some t-shirt transfer paper ($7 for 6 sheets) for my printer, and ironed sayings onto the kids’ shirts myself.   I printed 3 or 4 sayings onto each sheet of paper, which made the project even more affordable. I was just thrilled with how they turned out.  You can click on the picture to see a larger version.

The green one on top is for Eldest. The rust one is for our 17 year old. The red T with the 40 on is is for our 16 year old son, and is in reference to Isaiah 40. The yellow one is for our 13 year old son. The mint T is for our 12 year old daughter. The pink is for our 10 year old daughter. The blue one is for our 10 year old son. The 9 year old son gets the orange one. The blue 3:16 T is for our 5 year old. I am going to review John 3:16 with her so she can tell it to anyone who asks about her shirt– she is just the kid to enjoy answering any questions she might have. Then of course the littlest shirt is for our 3 year old, who is definitely very good at making a joyful noise! I can’t wait to give these to the kids!

  18. Great project Mary.
    I tell myself one day I will do a t-shirt project, paint one or something. And it has yet to happen.
    Maybe I could actually handle this one. Maybe.
