Did you know that you can make an easy airbrushed shirt in minutes? Did you also know it is easy enough that your kids can do it? Yep! I was asked to do a sponsored post for Testors with their Airbrainz Airbrush and we had a blast coming up with a shirt and experimenting with the airbrush. This is really super easy and perfect for kids and you can see our results below. I decided to include this project for scout week because it really is a great project that scout groups could do!

We are kicking off Craft Lightning Father’s Day edition with some gold leaf planes. You can make these yourself and they will make a great Father’s Day gift. The kids can even help with this one.

I love that they are easy enough for kids to help with yet great enough to display anywhere.
