A Birthday Activity Idea

Last week we celebrated my son, Perry's 6th birthday.
With a stronger male attitude than last year, Perry asked for Superman birthday items. Since his mom is not a pure "theme person" as you might have read in my previous post, The Theme Society it has to be mixed and balanced with free air as well.
Sure - I'm not that tough so he did make me design a Superman invitation cards, buy Superman plates for the cake and order a cake with a local - creative interpretation of the image of superman on top.

Perry LOVED The cake and of course
asked for himself the piece with Superman's head.

But I won't center on Superman - it's beyond me - I want to share with you the idea of what we did as the main activity with the kids Since it was a success and in case you would like to try it in your own kids' parties.
It was fun, creative and nothing nailed to a "theme" (thanks god!)
We painted shirts and the kids loved it.

If you would like to do it too, here is a list of what you need:
  • Solid color shirts
  • Fabric paints
  • 3D Fabric paints (for writing)
  • Stencils (for fabric painting - stick to the fabric while you paint it)
  • Squares of cardboard (to put inside the shirt while painting it - so the color does not stain the other side of the shirt)
  • Sponge brushes (best to color the stencils with)
  • Brushes
  • Hangers (so the kids can take the shirt home "safely")

Have Fun!
