Baymax Tshirt With Template

We are big fans of Big Hero 6 around here! It is such a great movie. Especially Baymax. He is too cute!

My son just turned 7 so I decided that this would be such an easy shirt to make for his birthday party.

You will need:

white t shirt

black fabric paint

sponge paint brush

piece of cardboard to put between the layers of the tshirt

vinyl, freezer paper, or something else to cut a stencil from, preferably see through unless you are using a cutting machine.

included template

If you have a craft cutting machine, it would work great for this. If not, it should be easy enough without it. I know that I talk about my machine with several posts, but I love it so much and use it all the time!

Here is the template.  Just print it out on a sheet of paper.

Now, if you are using freezer paper or something see through, you will just place that on top of your template.

If you are using a cutting machine, you can simply trace the above image.

To use the freezer paper method, trace the image on to the sheet and cut out the black parts.  You will want to use an exacto knife or something. Make sure that you have an edge to your sheet.  You will be keeping the white part, opposite of what you would think. You can then place it on your shirt and press down.

Now you will use your black fabric paint and dab it on with the sponge brush.  You don’t need very much. Dab it on in up and down movement, don’t brush it on because it could spread under the stencil.

Let it dry for a bit, but don’t wait until it dries all the way or it will be hard to get it off. Let it dry fully before you try to wear it.

There you go!  Now you have a t shirt perfect for your Baymax fan.

Garden Markers DIY, Garden ideas, DIY  Craft,  Garden party or Garden, Kid craft projects, easy and popular ideasI have made the mistake before of NOT marking my garden… and I forget what I planted in different sections of the garden. It can be rather frustrating  and a bit of a guessing game till the plants get larger.  We have used lots of different markers over the years but this is one of my favorite ways.  Since you use the seed packet as the marker, you can go back and check things on the packet like growing time, harvest information or even save it so you know to look for that variety again next year if it is one your really like.  The key is to make it water proof so it lasts till the end of the growing season.

These are so easy to make and turned out really cute.  All you need is the empty seed packet, some wooden spoons  and packaging tape.  I got a bunch of wooden spoons at a yard sale so they cost me about five cents each, but you can normally find a 4 pack at the dollar store.  Put the wooden spoon inside the empty seed packet, use packaging tape to cover the whole packet to make it waterproof and secure it to the spoon too. Simple as that you are done, now just put the handle into the ground and mark where you planted those seeds.

Camping Party Centerpieces, Great For a Camping Party

We just had our blue and gold banquet and it was a blast!  We had a camping theme this year.  If you don’t know what a blue and gold banquet is, it is a party to celebrate the birthday of  boy scouts of America.  In our cub scout troops we get to have a party.  Each year we do a fun, different theme and this year we thought it would camping would be great!

On each table we did a campfire centerpiece.

 To make these yourselves you will need:

Red, yellow and orange tissue paper

Empty toilet paper rolls

Brown sharpie

Glue

Scissors

Paper for the center of the table

I collected empty toilet paper rolls for a while.  You will need 4 to 5 for each table.  I then took a brown sharpie and drew bark type lines on each roll.  When you are decorating the table you will glue these to the paper on your table to keep them from moving.  You could just glue them together, but they tend to not stay very well.

I then opened 1 package of each color of tissue paper and opened them up.  I cut it into quarters.  I then placed one piece of each color together and wrinkled them a little bit.  Once they were layered I rolled the ends so that they were all bunched together.  I glued them to the tablecloth between the 5 toilet paper rolls.  I used hot glue for this part.

That is it!  You are done!  Super simple and adorable centerpieces for your camping theme party!

Camping Party Decorations, Great Blue and Gold Banquet Idea

I am so excited by how great our blue and gold banquet turned out!  It was so simple and inexpensive but yet it turned out great!  I think it was a real hit.

We had a camping theme and it was super simple to decorate for.  Our budget was very small and yet we were able to make it look great.  We took a small, older tent, some coolers, some small artificial trees, camping chairs,  sleeping bags and a fire pit with wood in it and used tissue paper in it for the fire. We made centerpieces (that will be a blog post) That is it!  Everything that we already had on hand.  Luckily we were using a church gym so we had plenty of room. We left half of the gym to be used for different activities, but the rest of the gym was decorated.

My favorite part was the fire pit in the middle.  Not only was it really cute, but we had the children gather around it for stories and camp songs during the evening.  They thought that was great!

Not only did it look great, but it just shows that you don’t need over the top decor to make a party a hit!  Just a few key pieces can really have a great impact.

Worm and Dirt Cake

We recently had a blue and gold banquet for our cub scout troop and the boys were each responsible for bringing an outdoor themed cake.  I wanted my son to be able to do most of the work himself, since that was the point of them bringing them.  I was thinking about the cups of pudding we used to have as kids with crushed oreos on top and gummy worms and decided to incorporate that idea into a cake!

You will need

A chocolate cake mix and ingredients on the box

Chocolate graham crackers or oreos

Chocolate frosting

gummy worms

rolling pin and ziploc storage bag (for crushing the crackers)

Worm and dirt cake, #wormcake, #dirtcake, #cake, #grahamcrackers, #fundeserts, #chocolatecake, #quickdeserts, #easycake, #thriftydeserts

I usually make my own frosting, but since I was in charge of the event I decided one less thing to do and worry about would be best, so I bought a container of frosting.  Once the cake is baked according to the box directions, and cooled completely, spread the chocolate frosting over the cake.  Don’t worry about the imperfections or having it iced beautifully because it will be covered by cracker/ cookie crumbs.

Once the cake is frosted, put one package of your chocolate graham crackers (just one of the envelopes from inside the box, not the whole box) or the whole package of your oreos in a ziploc storage bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.  Some chunks are fine, dirt isn’t perfectly smooth there is always rocks or clumps in the dirt anyway.  This is another great way the kids can help!  My 9 year old did all the steps, I just stood back and directed him how to do it all which made him so proud!

Once they are crushed pour them over the top of your cake, evening them out with your hand to make sure all the icing is covered.  Now just add your worms.  Gently push some down into the crumbs so they look like they are coming out of the dirt and you are done!

This is such a great, simple cake that is great for someone just learning their way around the kitchen.  Seeing how proud they are when they make something that looks awesome and tastes great is such a fun thing!
