playtime: dress like a rockstar

Jem and The Holograms - Rockstar Party - Rockstar Dress Up Play | Small for Big

Sometimes you just need to get down on the floor and play with your kids.

I was pretty psyched to do exactly that when we created these images inspired by Jem and the Holograms. It was an epic mother-daughter playdate afternoon! We dressed up like Jem, made rockstar T-shirts, and hosted our own rockstar “tea” party with a roster of A-list stuffed guests.

The T-shirts are so easy to make too. Just grab a plain tee, a stencil, and some spray fabric dyes like these Tumble Dyes. Lay out your shirt, place your stencil – we used some foam stars, so easy – and spray your dyes. Make sure to remove the stencils right away, before the dyes dry. Then set it in the dryer for 15 minutes and voila: easiest diy shirts ever.

The Tea party was also an easy afternoon activity. We nabbed some spare martini glasses, and pierced some pom pom “olives” onto stir sticks. Then, gather your stuffed animals of all varieties to make for a perfect afternoon party.

haha, did you watch the cartoons growing up? I’d forgotten about them until we worked on this!
