4th of July Shirt

Help your child develop his own sense of style. Small hands can easily grip the cookie cutter that you use as a stamp, developing fine motor skills while creating a fun shirt they can be proud to wear to the annual 4th of July picnic.

We did this using pipe cleaners stamps instead of cookie cutters. You can bend pipe cleaners into any shape you want. I like it because I think it makes a bolder image. This activity was a hit with the kids because they love designing their own shirts. We even used glow in the dark fabric paint, so we can’t to see how they’ll look on the Fourth of July while we’re shooting off fireworks.


What You Need:

  • Clean, ironed T-shirt
  • Cardboard to slip into T-shirt
  • Red and/or blue fabric paint
  • Paper plate
  • Scrap paper

What You Do:

  1. Help your kid slip the piece of cardboard into the shirt through the bottom. Explain that with the cardboard in place, whatever he prints on the front of the shirt will not bleed through onto the back.
  2. Pour a small amount of paint onto the paper plate.
  3. Have your child dip the cookie cutter into the paint and then use it to stamp star designs on the scrap paper. It may take some practice to avoid leaving dribbles or smearing the stamp when lifting up the cookie cutter.
  4. Once your child has the technique down, it’s time to stamp stars onto the shirt. Your child can add as many or as few as he likes to create his very own design.
  5. Leave the shirt in a safe place for the paint to dry.

Options: Your child can also use glow in the dark or glitter paint on a dark-colored shirt. In addition to stars, you can also use heart shaped cookie cutters, snowflakes, ghosts and more. Make shirts for the whole family and have a special family “uniform” to wear to any upcoming event.
