Messy Project Shirts
Ask all the children to bring an old shirt from home which will stay at school to be used as the “messy project shirt.”
(A t-shirt works the best for young children since there are no buttons to be fastened.)
Make the shirts more interesting by allowing the children to decorate them. Here is a fun fabric paint recipe:
*Add 1 cup of powdered albumen to three cups of liquid tempera paint.
*Add a few drops of vinegar.
*After the paint has dried on the fabric, set the colors by placing the fabric between two pieces of paper and steam with an iron.
