Creating custom t-shirts with your students is a rewarding experience and a great way to wrap up the year. Take the opportunity to say something special about each student or commemorate the “graduation” from your grade level. Maybe your class had a theme or a project that they were very involved in throughout the year – these can also work towards great designs. Whether each student creates a unique shirt or you decide on a universal pattern for the group, you’re assured an afternoon of fun and a group of satisfied artists when it’s all over.
