When I was offered the chance to review a design your own T-shirt package with my boys I jumped at the chance, an opportunity for them to spend time with Mummy and Daddy, making something that will last, while getting messy. The communication with the company has been great discussing what the boys are into and what transfers they would like for their t-shirts and ensuring that we got the right sizes. The transfers the boys choose The boys loved watching Daddy iron the transfers onto the T-shirts, I think they were intrigued as to what he was actually doing and were surprised when they didn’t come off again, however much Tim picked at his!
Then came the really fun bit, where they got to play with the tubes of paint, which were really easy for little hands to squeeze. For our youngest maybe a little too easy so we rectified this by allowing him to squeeze and then arming him with a cotton bud to spread it around.
When we did them we found something to put between the layers of the t-shirt, I would say this is a good idea as the paint can go through, particularly if they squeeze the tube hard, and without the layer inbetween it would have gone onto the back of the t-shirt. With prices from just £4.99 for the complete kit, I think it is a really great activity, the boys both enjoyed doing it and were really proud to wear their t-shirts to nursery to show their friends today.
