5 Ideas On Things To Make With Your Kids

Looking for something to do with the kids? Take out your cutting machine and/or Heat Press! There are plenty of projects that you can do together. You just need to think a bit outside the box :)

This is why today we are showing you 5 projects that we’ve made, and the kids helped!

5 ideas to make with your kids

1  – Coloring Tees

Do you have a child who likes to color? Or maybe a budding fashion designer? Have them help you personalize clothes for themselves OR their furry stuffed friends with coloring tees!

Coloring tees bring endless fun because you can create an outlined image on a garment, give them some Crayola markers and let them add the color. Once they are tired of it (or dirty) throw it in the wash to start again. See how to make it here!

What Is Adhesive Vinyl?

Adhesive Vinyl is used as a decorative vinyl for creating signs or craft projects. It has an adhesive back and can be applied to just about any hard surface. Adhesive Vinyl comes in three adhesive strengths – semi-permanent (631), permanent (651), and professional grade.

How Do You Cut Adhesive Vinyl?

 1 – When you cut adhesive vinyl you want to cut on the shiny color. Not on the paper backing.

2 – Once cut you will want to weed your design.
