How to Make Kids Crafting Personal


Hello Somewhat Simple Readers! My name is Angelina and you can find me blogging over at JoJo and Eloise.

I am so thrilled to be here sharing with you and I am also looking forward to getting to know you.

I have to say that this is,

Hands Down the best Kids craft EVER!!!

Okay, Okay!!! I know you probably here that all the time, but this time it’s REALLY true. :)

Why? You ask!!

Because, this little guy was THRILLED to pieces to be a part of creating his very, OWN SHIRT!!

Now, that’s a Craft worth thinking about.



Every kid loves to have things that are SPECIAL to them. It’s important to know what your child LOVES and is into at the moment. So use that thing as means to be creative and Personalize that craft to fit and suit his or her’s interest.


Our little man is into Superman and I mean INTO it! He loves, Watching (the old black & White ones), Wearing, Acting and Playing with his Superman toys.

He also LOVES crafting with me, so I took his Favorite thing and turned it into the BEST craft ever.

Here’s what I did.

I drew a Superman emblem onto a blank piece of paper and grabbed some of my Fabric Markers.

( Be sure to follow your Manufactures instructions )


I found a plain white T-Shirt in his drawers and slid that piece of paper inside.

You can see the faint lines of the pattern. (this method works best with White or light color fabrics). Using a pencil I lightly traced out the design onto my t-shirt.


I then placed a piece of thin cardboard inside the t-shirt, to prevent the fabric markers from bleeding through.

I traced out my design.


If your design or pattern has more than one color you can put small Color Dots in those areas. It will help your little one’s know where the colors go. It is also a great way to train and teach them how to follow Color Codes and Instructions.

Our little guy is one of those who colors ALL over the place. He didn’t pay much attention to the color dots, but it is certainly a good training tool and the more he does it the better he will get at it.

So don’t worry if it’s not perfect.


After I prepared the shirt for him, I handed him the Fabric Markers and let him go to town.

He was SO excited!!!

Not only did he get to color his Very Own shirt and Not only was it Superman but he got to use MOMMA’S, fabric markers. He thought that was so much fun.


I seriously think this was the BEST day of his life.

He got so into it and kept talking about how he was making his Very Own Superman shirt. I was so overjoyed with him as I saw how special and how important being a part of making something of His Very Own was so meaningful to him.



His shirt was all ready to wear and Talk about one Happy little Boy!


He was so VERY proud of his work and couldn’t stop showing and telling everyone in the house about it.


So go ahead and get PERSONAL when crafting with your little ones.

Your sure to make them SMILE and bring JOY to their Sweet little hearts, not to mention yours as well.


I had so much fun sharing here today and would love to connect with you.

Here are some of the places you can find me.

Hope to see you there.
