100 Days of School Fun
My boys are celebrating the 100th Day of School next week. They are supposed to wear 100 of something. It can be as simple as a necklace with 100 beads or cereal rings. Of course, they wanted to make t-shirts. I don’t typically think of myself as a crafty mom, but these were really simple and so much fun!
Monster 100 Googly Eye T-Shirt:
First, I bought a cheap t-shirt. You can get this shirt fairly inexpensively from Amazon as well! Sometimes you can find these at the Dollar store. You can buy big packs of Googly Eyes on Amazon, and they are usually available at the Dollar store as well. I used a fabric marker to draw outline for the monster shape. You could also do this with a Sharpie or other semi-permanent marker. You can use fabric adhesive, but I just used tacky glue, since I know we won’t be re-wearing or washing this shirt.
We glued the eyes on first, saving the two at the top for last. After the glue was dry, we drew the outline for the monster shape. This was a fun and easy project for my kids and I to do together.
Super Mario Bros 100 Coins T-Shirt:
My other son LOVES Super Mario Bros so we decided to go along with that theme. I originally got the idea from a Pinterest picture. I got a cheap t-shirt at the Dollar store. You can get this shirt fairly inexpensively from Amazon as well! I knew that real pennies would be too heavy so I purchased a package of toy pennies from Amazon. You can often find toy money and coins at the Dollar store as well. I purchased duct tape in two shades of green. They sell several shades at the Dollar store, but you can also purchase it from Amazon. I also purchased a Mario Bros patch from Amazon. I am planning to do a loose stitch to apply the patch. That way, we can re-use it on a backpack or a different shirt after we are done with the 100 days shirt. We didn’t get the patch in the mail yet so we printed out a Mario Bros coloring sheet as a place holder, just in case the patch doesn’t arrive in time.
I cut the dark duct tape into two rectangles to create the shape for the pipes. Then, I cut the lighter green duct tape into slightly smaller rectangles and applied them in the center to complete the pipes. You could also use green felt or fabric for the pipes.
These shirts were easy enough for this not-so-crafty mama and they were so fun to make!
