So while you’re busy making the smore dip and decorating with your new string lights the kids can make their own Canada Day Shirts! I love this craft idea. Easy, fun and wearable.

What you’ll need:

  • White t-shirt
  • Coloured sharpies
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Eye dropper

Directions:

  1. Using a sharpie draw lines or dots on your shirt.
  2. Take your eye dropper and drop some rubbing alcohol onto your sharpie drawing.
  3. You’ll see the marker start to bleed outwards.
  4. Let dry.
  5. Wear it!

Wishing you all a safe and happy Canada Day!
