How to turn a paint-ruined shirt into a wearable fruit-inspired artwork. Alternatively,¬†you may like to argue we turned it into an even more paint-ruined shirt. ūüôā Either way, this is a picture based tutorial about painting kids clothes with acrylic paint. It was such a fun kids craft activity for us to increase¬†non-mealtime fruit exposures. ¬†Also see my article on why food exposure away from mealtimes is great for fussy eaters.
