One dark or bright colored t-shirt per person
bleach in a spray bottle
plastic grocery bags
Cut designs out of the contact paper. For our trip to an aquarium, we cut out fish shapes. Stick the contact paper shapes onto the front of the shirt.
Fold the newspaper in half or quarters and place in a plastic grocery bag. Put this inside the shirt to protect the back of it.
The next steps are best done outside. Place the t-shirt on a flat surface. Spray lightly with bleach (you may want to wear rubber gloves). Wait about 1 minute until you see the color start to change. Rinse well with water (I used the hose, but a bucket of water would work too). This will stop the bleaching and keep the bleach from eating through the fabric. Remove the bag of newspaper and peel off the contact paper.
Run the shirts through the laundry (washer and dryer) before wearing. Empty and rinse out the spray bottle or label it so that you know it contains bleach.
Be creative and have fun!
