Wednesday evening Logan informed me he wanted a t-shirt design for his class for Field Day (similar to what I did for Caleb’s class for the 100th day of kindergarten). Now, had we discussed this a week earlier I totally could’ve done it for him and his class; however, since we basically had a day to get it done, I countered with making him a special shirt using a freezer paper stencil. He accepted and then we discussed design ideas. His list was short and sweet: a lion on the front and his name and classroom number on the back. I thought he might like to draw a lion for me to turn into the stencil, but really I think he just wanted a mom-drawn one, special for him (which positively charms me to no end…I don’t know how much longer this will go on so I’ll gladly oblige while I still can).
In the end it took me less than half an hour from drawing and cutting the stencil to ironing the stencil onto the shirt and painting it. Logan was happy with it and his friends thought it was cool…a success all around by my account.
