It’s Jenn from A Jennuine Life and I’ll show you how quick and easy this kids’ crafted project is.

Start by getting your kiddos to color with fabric crayons on a plain sheet of white paper.  Give them the appropriate color and encourage them to scribble or fill a large area.

Lay out your t-shirt and arrange the strips colored side down on top.  Using a pressing cloth to protect your iron, transfer the coloring by pressing with the highest heat setting for the fabric of the t-shirt and no steam.
