Lay out the t-shirt, and stick a piece of paper or parchment paper inside it. Draw zigzag designs across the front leaving a thin white strip in between each color. Your kids can make any designs they want.

Pour some alcohol into the spray bottle, and spray a good layer over all the colors. The more you soak it, the more it will spread. This time the kids only wanted them spreading a little, but I like going crazy with spreading the colors 😉
