If you missed it when I shared it last week on Facebook, the kids and I had some fun doing a Halloween craft — we made glow-in-the-dark handprint ghost t-shirts — so I’m resharing the post I wrote for CraftyChild.com (formerly KidsCraftsFunandGames.com).
So yes, I did this craft, so technically I can’t claim I am (or was) too tired to try, but hey, I’m too tired to find something else to share, so that’s gotta count for something, no? Ahhh, laziness. 😉
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Solid-colored, long-sleeved t-shirts (We grabbed some from our dressers.)
- Nontoxic glow-in-the-dark gel paint (Found this in the crafting paint aisle at Wal-Mart.)
- One paintbrush (We happened to have a paint sponge on hand, and I found this worked great.)
- Puffy paint in various colors (In keeping with the Halloween theme, we used white, black, orange, and a glow-in-the-dark white)
- Baby wipes (or wet paper towels/any other wet cloths) to wipe off hands
- Newspaper or butcher-type paper to cover the table/floor (optional)

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!
I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how
lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
