Your kids will have a blast making this Classroom Doodles T-Shirt because they get to decorate their own T-shirt with really cool designs. Making DIY T-shirts are always a blast, but when you add a back to school twist to it, it will make this craft idea even more fun. Your kids will love wearing their new shirt that they designed, and they will enjoy telling everyone about how they made it themselves. Sometimes designing your own shirts can get expensive, but this shirt design idea is easy and low-cost, which makes it the perfect project idea.
