A few weeks ago I wanted to make turtle shells for T week, since we were studying turtles. I had already cut shells out of large pieces of cardboard when I realized I had no more paintbrushes for the kids to paint their shells with. I didn't want to give up on the project for such a silly reason so I made these "T-shirt dabbers" to paint with. Here's how......
Find an old stained shirt and cut the arms off.
Cut the front of the shirt apart from the back.
Fold arms in half and roll each one up.
Place one arm roll in the center of each shirt section.
Gather shirt corners together. Tie in place right above arm roll and another tie a couple of inches higher.
This kept my kids busy for a while, which is saying a lot because they usually don't like coloring or painting as much as they do crafting.
Oh, and the dabbers MAYBE took 5 minutes to make.
