Every year we like to create personalized T-shirts for Canada Day.  It gives the kids a sense of pride and ownership when they decorate their own t-shirt.  There are so many fun ways to make a one-of-a-kind Canada Day shirt.  How about this Canada Day Pocket T, this Canada Day Tie T or simply using your child’s hand print as the maple leaf in the center of the flag?

This year I had the kids paint their own Canada flags.  We used Tulip fabric paint and Tulip fabric markers which can be found at Walmart or Michaels.

I sketched the outline of a flag onto the front of each t-shirt and had the kids “colour” it in.

While Cameron went with the more traditional red colour.  He also added the word “Canada” all around he t-shirt.  Very personalized to say the least!
