Soothe Aches & Pains the Race Day Way
As busy parents, we are always on the go. Seems like most of my entire day is filled with school runs, packed lunches, soccer games, field trips and everything else that comes along with being a Mom. My heart is full of love and my body is full of aches, though I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m sure you can relate.
I decided I would make this super cute “Race Day” t-shirt so that I could take five minutes to rest and relax while still spending time with my kids. With just a few supplies, and somewhat of an imagination, you too can have your very own race day shirt. Your kids will love this game!
Here’s what you will need:
- A plain colored t-shirt ( I used white)
- Fabric paint
- Paint brushes
- Piece of cardboard or newspapers
- A little car or 2
Lay your t-shirt flat, front facing down. Place you cardboard or newspapers inside the two layers to ensure the paints don’t bleed through.
The next step is optional, but I chose to cover a base layer of green paint. I wanted it to look like grass, plus it helps the rest of the paint go on a little easier.
Next, use your creativity and get crafty! Make roads, buildings, farms or whatever else your heart desires. Time to let your personality shine!
Once I had my roads mapped out, I decided to make a farm, a pond with a few ducks, a carwash and a hospital. You don’t need a lot of attention to detail. Let your kids use their imagination!
Being the Mom of two girls, of course I just had to make glittery roads. Just seemed like the right thing to do.
Once you have painted your final details to your exact liking, lay our shirt out flat to dry throughly. Once dry, you are ready to go.
Lay flat and relax! Give your kids a few little race cars and you are well on your way to a great back massage. The best part is, your kids will think you are playing a fun game with them. It’s a win win for everyone.
I was able to purchase all of my race day t-shirt supplies at Walmart. While you are there, you might need to pick up a bottle of >fast acting Advil® Film-Coated. The Rapid Release Formula goes to work in minutes on tough pain* (*Among OTC pain relievers.).
Better yet, you can print an Advil® Film Coated coupon before you head over to Walmart so you can save big. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the Ford Ecoboost 400 in Miami on November 20th. Keep an eye out for Ty Dillion, who is driving the #95 car. It’s going to be a really great time! My kids love attending the races.
