Activity: Got Dirt? T-Shirts

With this fun and easy activity, children will make their own Got Dirt? gardening t-shirts.  The t-shirts will be perfect to wear while working out in the garden.

  • T-shirts
  • Fabric paints
  • Paint brushes, sponges, etc.
  • Water
  • Paper towels
  • Permanent Marker
  • Before having students decorate the t-shirt, write each child's name on the t-shirt using a permanent marker.
  • Give each student a t-shirt, some fabric paints and paint brushes.
  • Have each student decorate their t-shirt with pictures of fruits and vegetables that will be in the garden.
    • Don't forget to have them write "Got Dirt?" on the t-shirt!
  • Place the completed t-shirts in a safe place to dry before wearing.
After decorating the t-shirts, students can wear them while working in the garden.  Students will enjoy wearing the t-shirts and parents will like that the students' regular clothes aren't getting muddy!
