Your kids will love having a t shirt made with their very own comic strip. I have more steps on creating photographic stories with kids in this superhero dinosaurs post. It is really great for getting their imagination working, flexing their creative muscles and practising all those storytelling and language skills!

Variations

Use permanent markers to mark out a comic strip box on a white t-shirt. Use fabric markers or washable markers (if you want to keep changing your story) to draw your own comic book scenes!
