race you back!

Dad wins with this Father’s Day gift that lets him relax as the kids play. Place cardboard inside a prewashed T-shirt to keep the paint from seeping through. On the back of the shirt, paint a racetrack with fabric paint and a foam brush. Let it dry. Draw the outline of the grandstand with black fabric marker, then use a cotton swab to add dots of paint for the spectators’ heads. Paint a wide yellow stripe for the start-finish line and let it dry. Use the marker to draw a checkered pattern on the stripe and a dashed line on the road. Set the paint according to the package’s directions. PHOTOGRAPH BY SABRINA HELAS; CRAFT STYLING BY BLAKE RAMSEY; STYLING BY HEATHER ROME. THE CHILDREN’S PLACE SHIRT AND SHORTS…
