Many teachers use tie dye shirts for class field trips. I on the other hand went in another direction a couple of years ago since I got really good interest from parents. I decided to have my own class t-shirt!
I gave each 2nd grade student a piece of paper and asked them to design what they would like to be on the t-shirt and any words they wanted on it. They were told it had to be school appropriate. While many drew action figures and princesses two students actually drew a Kangaroo hopping! I thought the Kangaroo was a brilliant idea as it fit well with my last name!
A company called Tropical Designs (Their link is on the right of my page) did the shirts for us for a super reasonable price! The shirts were screen printed and not the iron on kind that fade so quickly. For more information on Tropical Designs, click the link to the right of the website! My Grandma, a wonderful art teacher for many years actually used the children's drawings and designed it before we sent it to Tropical Designs to be printed. Check out a picture of the class shirt that we had them make for us.
