Happy 4th of July!

We had fun celebrating the 4th of July . . . and fun getting ready for it! We decided to make t-shirts in honor of our nation's birthday.

To begin, we used artist tape and star stickers to prepare the t-shirts for painting. Lael and Jaden each decided where they wanted their stars and stripes to be. Mommy helped with the stripes, and the kids placed their stars themselves.

Then it was time to paint . . . we used sponge brushes and fabric paint.

It took a while to cover all the desired areas with paint!

Then we had to WAIT . . . and WAIT . . . and WAIT . . . and WAIT SOME MORE . . . for 24 HOURS so that the paint could thoroughly dry before we could unveil the finished product.

However, in the end, the wait was worth it! What do you think?
