Create your own Christmas T-Shirt featuring a cute reindeer with handprint antlers. We printed a cheap plain white cotton T-Shirt but you could also try printing cotton or calico shopping bags, baby onesies etc for festive gifts.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Any age
Level: Easy

Materials
Plain cotton T-Shirt
Fabric paints
Roller (optional)
Potato
Iron to set the fabric paint (or follow manufacturer's instructions)
Baby wipes or damp cloth to wipe paint off hands quickly.

Method
Put a piece of thick paper or scrap cardboard inside the T-Shirt. This stops any paint soaking through to the back.

Ready to go


We mixed red, green and yellow fabric paint on a flat container to make brown paint.

Use a roller to cover one hand with brown fabric paint. (You could also use a brush or just press the hand directly into the paint).

A roller helps to give an even coverage


Press the hand carefully down on to the T-Shirt, with the thumb pointing towards the centre of the T-Shirt. This is one antler.

Wipe the hand clean then repeat with the other hand to give a second handprint antler, thumb pointing in to the centre of the T-Shirt.
Cut a potato in half to give a circle shape stamp.

Add black eyes by dipping a finger into black fabric paint and making two fingerprints above the nose.
