My girls LOVE doing crafts and usually get their fill during the school year but now that it's summer, they're clamoring for some to do at home. Unfortunately, I am not crafty at all and my DH will not be happy if a mess is made. Does anyone have any ideas for EASY, mess-free (or at least "minimal mess") crafts?

Thanks!

You can get puff paint at Michaels. It comes in a squeeze bottle and has a 3-dimensional effect, put a piece of cardboard inside the t-shirt before they start, so they have a somewhat hard surface to work on. Not really very messy. Also a good idea to wash the t-shirt before you paint.
