We love camping! Seriously, we can’t live without it! In honor of our love for camping I’m sharing some Kids Camping Shirts today with a free download to make your own!
We go camping few times a year and we sleep in a tent and hike and cook and it’s amazing. My mom took us camping as kids and we have great memories so after we had kids Bryan and I started going again to keep the tradition alive. We usually go to a State Park that is right under 2 hours away so it’s really not too much trouble because it’s so close. Keeping it simple is key. We do however like to make a big deal of our camping menu which is fun :) We go with our family and some good family friends so we have a group of around 20ish. There is something about sleeping outside under the stars and roughing it for a few days that will fully recharge your battery. And can you think of a better way for kids to spend a weekend than playing outside?!
For our last trip we decided to make “official” camp shirts. I made the adults matching shirts but made something a little different for the kids and I just love how they turned out!
All the moms picked a different colored solid tee for their kid. They are super simple but that’s kind of how camping is so it works :) I used black heat transfer vinyl and a heat press so they will hold up well, we are very hard on our camping clothes as you can imagine! (HERE is a link to my heat press machine, I love it!) I found the super soft blank tees and these little dino shorts at Walmart.
I have the silhouette file available HERE for free to download or if you just want the PNG file to copy and trace on vinyl you can find that HERE. I have the images flipped so be sure to check that before cutting depending on how you are doing them. I would love to see your shirts if you make one so don’t forget to email me or tag me in a pic :) Also… if you haven’t taken your kids tent camping yet you should definitely give it a try, I promise you will all love it!
