Poloppo Kids Art T-Shirts {Giveaway}

*UPDATED with Winners* Congrats to CatherineB and Cop Mama !!!

My kids love to draw. 


So much so, that I recently turned my china hutch into an art center. It sounds fancy (or insane), but I just moved the dishes I rarely use and filled the space with stacks of papers of all colors, pencils, markers and crayons.

I showed you what I do with their special art pieces, but I also love this idea:

T-Me Kit

Poloppo is a company that makes kid's art, wearable.

And I just love that!

They sent me a kit (packaged like the cute one above)to try out. I can't wait to give it to my daughter for her birthday! 

My favorite part? The kit comes with everything your child needs to create a wearable work of art: paper, markers, instructions and a prepaid envelope to mail design. The website is very user-friendly and the gallery gives kids a lot of great drawing ideas. 


Happy HandprintSparkles

For this do-it-yourself Mom, this is right up my alley.

Go check out the site, leave a comment and tell me what you think your kids would draw. Poloppo is giving away TWO long-sleeve shirt kits ($35 each).

This giveaway ends Monday.

My 3 year old daughter's favorite thing to draw right now is a family picture. I love that she add crazy curly hair on mommy, a baseball cap on daddy and of course she never forgets her dog Milo!

bridget {bake at 350} said...

Oh, I would LOVE that!!! I'm sure my son would draw some sort of computer. :)

Sara said...

What a great idea! My oldest daughter would probably draw bugs (she's a self-proclaimed "bug scientist"), while my youngest would most likely draw herself, as a princess (we've seen an awful lot of that lately)!

Aunt J-ha said...

My little guy would draw an abstract version of Lightning McQueen, Chick Hicks & The King racing for the piston cup.

barbafamily said...

LOVE this! And, I think both my kiddos would draw a family portrait...that seems to be their favorite thing to draw lately :-)

Bailey's Leaf said...

My daughter would actually draw all three of us. She might squeeze the iguana and cat in, too.

What a fun thing! They where uniforms at their school, but have a free day each month to wear as they choose (within reason.) She would love to wear her art on a free day!

Thanks!

Tessa said...

My son would draw colors, lots and lots of colors, which seems to be his favorite these days. My daughter would draw dots and lines (she's 2) in lots of colors. They both seem to be into the abstract art :) They would love the t-shirt though. I hope your daughter enjoys her birthday present!

O Mom said...

I love this!
My girls would draw our family. Oh how cute. My oldest daughter has a drawing of a goose, which would be so neat on a shirt!

Everyday Becky said...

This would make such a great Christmas gift for my two artists! My oldest daughter would probably draw dogs or animals of some kind. She's my future vet. : )

My youngest would have a princess or fashionista of some kind. My favorite of her recent artwork has been drawings of her and me with hearts. She makes me so skinny and puts on high heels and pretty dresses. : ) There would definitely be pink in there somewhere.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Whitney said...

These are so neat! I would ask my son to draw a B (his initial) and whatever else he wants.

blessdtwice said...

Oooh...now THAT is going down as a birthday gift idea! And I love the idea of re-using the china hutch. just fyi..I use magazine holders (you know, the card board ones?) to hold colored paper..works well, and you can group the paper according to color.

My youngest would probaly draw a butterfly- she is into that lately. The oldest? its a wild card- she LOVES to draw, and it could be anything...but she is big into peace symbols these days so if she knew it was going on a shirt..that is probably what it would be!

midwestmom3 said...

They would definitely draw a space scene, or dinosaurs, or our family, or a self portrait of them sticking their tongues out. (They love high art)

Anonymous said...

My little girl's favorite thing right now is ladybugs, so I'm sure that's what she'd draw. Thanks for the chance to win.

Olivia said...

Jacob just came home from his Mother's Day Out with a beautiful painting of himself and our dog, Dixie. Too bad it's not on the special paper for one of these t-shirts! It would make a perfect one. Hmm...maybe I could get him to recreate it!

Tonya said...

what a cool idea! my 5yo son would draw a pic of him w/a friend or his sister or our family. he's finally learned to draw people w/all their parts...not just potato people! ;) my 9yo dd would draw her beloved KU Jayhawks!

these would be awesome christmas gifts for grandparents!

Bombtastic Belle said...

My n iece and nephews favorite thing to draw right now are animals :)

My 7 year old and 5 year old would be so into this and would most likely be drawing their famous puppy pics since they are NOT getting a real one for xmas :0)

Kristine said...

My 3 year has been doing a lot of drawing of flowers, herself, and sometimes family. My boys? Probably some sort of bionicle thing.

Stephanie said...

My daughter did this type of thing in school a couple of years ago...she drew a 3 toed sloth on the front and on the back was the report she wrote about the 3 toed sloth. Such a great idea. No sloths now though. She would be drawing horses for sure.

Amy@theredheaddiaries.blogspot.com said...

My daughter would draw hearts and stars...everything is hearts and stars lately :) Awesome idea!!!

Carlee said...

So fun! Dinosaurs, flowers, leaves, hands, princessess...whatever struck them at the moment!

Jennifer said...

This looks like so much fun! My kids are constantly creating things. My little one would probably make an animal like a cow or a duck with his own particular style. My older son would probably create a battle scene.

catherine B said...

This is a great idea - my kids would be thrilled to see their art on a t-shirt or product. I bet my son (7) would draw something nerf related and my daughter (5) either a self-portrait or a princess.

cheryl said...

my son would draw his favorite Transformer, Bumblebee! What a cool way to save your mementos!

Grateful for Grace said...

OH, this is such a cute idea! My daughter would draw butterflies and the other one would draw whales. I'm pretty sure.

Shelly said...

This is a very cute idea!!

Little Lizard said...

really neat idea! my daughter would definitely draw something unrecognizable.

BeckyB said...

My daughter would draw something in Africa!

Beth said...

My girls are amazing artists. Not a day goes by that I am not amazed at a drawing, painting or crafty piece of work they've brought me. I'd be hard pressed to choose just one!

Brandi said...

Um, both my boys would draw something STAR WARS for sure!!

And sadly, my 4 yr. old daughter might draw Sponge Bob, but I would gently encourage her to maybe draw a princess or a rainbow or a flower, just so long as it wasn't SPONGE BOB!!!!

Lori said...

I LOVE this! My 5 year old is into drawing hearts with lines coming out of it right now. She also likes drawing a cicle with her sister's name in it and a line through it - though I don't think that would be suitable for a t-shirt. ;) Thanks!

Patti said...

This would be great for my niece!
She is always drawing at my house and I would bet she would draw Spongebob.

Johnlyn ~ said...

My son always draws pictures of people. He would love this!

Diane {createdbydiane.blogspot.com} said...

I'm sure my son would come up with a star wars themed "mission" to draw, with droids

Vanessa said...

So cute!! My daughter would draw something to do with sports; Son #1 would draw a tank or an airplane, Son #2 would copy whatever Son #1 drew!!

thanks!

Jennifer, Sunshine, Angel, Miss Thang, My Birdy (formerly Baby) said...

Great product!
My Sunshine lives, I mean loves, cars...he has been drawing his dream car lately. My Angel gets lost in drawing dinosaurs. Miss Thang at the age of 3 is proving to be a part of abstract expressionism, although maybe it's because she's 3. Birdy - he just eats crayons!

aggiemomof2 said...

My son is perfecting his dinosaur so that would be his first choice! What a cute idea!

The Herd said...

Depends which kid---my youngest would draw lines all over then tell me the story of what is happening. My oldest would draw a princess, My next--a flower, and my oldest son, a car!

SavannahsSmiles said...

My 3 year old would draw an angel-his Sissy in heaven.

Audrey said...

I saw something like this at a folk art festival, but I think she printed them on squares for quilts. I think this would be perfect for my budding artist. He would probably draw some of his creatures that he makes up.

Melissa R said...

wearable art is a great idea! There are wonderful artists displayed in the gallery. Thanks for sharing!

Susan said...

What a great idea!!! My 6 year old would probably draw some thing related to Christmas right now.

Emily @ Under$1000PerMonth said...

My kid would write a story and want to wear it as a shirt.

Carla said...

My boys would draw tractors, combines or a picture of their new kitten - and all would be fun to sport around!

Amy @ Finer Things said...

What a fantastic idea. I've never heard of such a thing. My daughter would draw some elaborate castle/princess scene. :)

mytmagnolia said...

Very cute site! My oldest two would love wearing their own art. My 9 yr old would draw a nature scene. She really enjoys drawing things she sees on our family hikes. For my 7 yr old it would be our family. She is delopmentally delayed and draws much like a toddler but we know what it is. Thanks for sharing a great idea for gifts.

Tracey said...

We are still into scribbling around here, but would love a t-shirt with their very own scribbles!

care-in said...

This is such a great thing. My five year old is getting more interested in drawing lately. Her favorite thing to draw is a girl with curly hair (like her), a bow on top and a triangle dress with a heart in the middle. She is definitely noticing the details in her life and I love seeing them in her drawings.

Jane Anne said...

My boys always draw some kind of battle. I'd probably try to convince them to draw a picture of "SuperMom" saving the day. My oldest gave me a picture like that and it is a treasure to me.

What a fun giveaway!

WordWrangler said...

My 3 little musketeers would draw a pic of all three of them together. They are definitely in different stages of life and don't always get along as they are 5, 7 and 12 years old. BUT...nobody else better pick on any of them or the 3 musketeers are on the case! ;)

peace,
Donna

Rebecca said...

Go for it, ladies! When my now-high-schooler was in kindergarten, his art teacher arranged for orders of mugs, t-shirts, and more. We have a great "stick family pic" of of everyone wearing red cowboy boots. Including the cat. We're city folk. It was immortalized on a t-shirt and note cards, which I treasure!

Kristi_runwatch said...

My daughter tends to like to paint "designs" rather than a recognizable picture, so I'm sure she would love to have a fancy shirt with one of her picasso paintings!

We made t-shirts when she was 2 using paint, stencils, and a plain white shirt; a year and a half later she still loves it and wears it all the time!!

Kendra aka The Meanest Momma said...

my kiddo loves to draw a picture depicting the time they went fishing with grandpa -- it would look perfect on his chest for Christmas!

Lisa said...

My son would probably draw a Tranformer.

Jackie said...

My 7 year old son would love this. He would probably make something with Star Wars or Legos or robots. Fun!

Cop Mama said...

My 3 year old is all about drawing circles!

Cathy said...

My 4 yr old is kind of anti-drawing, so he would just make an orange square because orange is his daddy's favorite color. My 6 yr old has been drawing a lot of mermaids and fairies recently so I'm sure we would see one or both of those on her shirt.

Carri said...

My daughter would definitely draw a house. My son would probably draw anything with wheels or an animal since he is now obsessed with farmville on facebook.

elizabeth said...

I already have two pictures I would love to *wear* that my sons have created. I love when they do their own renditions of famous art works. Frankly, I always prefer theirs! Imagine! ;-)

Thank you!
eko

Gigi said...

My son would draw a picture of Indiana Jones saving the day and I'm sure he'd love wearing a shirt with his own artwork on it. He changes his clothes so he can become a hero at least 200 times a day! This sounds great! Thanks.

Gigi said...

Sorry, that last comment should have said my son changes his clothes at least 20 times a day! Not 200.

Kelly said...

I'm fairly certain my daughter would be drawing Ariel from The Little Mermaid. She likes to draw her with Flounder and a boat. She would absolutely love to wear her art as she has to show it off to others all the time! What a fun gift.

Chris & Amy said...

My baby would draw an animal but there is no telling what animal (it changes by the minute)!

Dawnisha said...

What a great idea! My oldest would probably draw the family and my youngest would draw circles. :)

Kristin said...

Thanks so much for the cool giveaway.

My son loves Star Wars! I am sure if I won this and he had his choice of ANYTHING in the world to draw-he'd draw Star Wars characters with light sabers! Lol!

Anonymous said...

This time of year my girls would all be drawing Christymas scenes

Sarah Shay said...

I would love to win this... my boys would draw robots or a picture of their family!

Sarah

Meredith said...

My 2 year old loves to color balloons...

Kimberly said...

My five year old daughter would love this! She is the proud co-owner of a new lab puppy named Bailey. She has been drawing pictures of the puppy for 2 days now including decorating the dog cage for Bailey's viewing pleasure! I'm sure she would proudly wear a shirt to show Bailey off since the idea of taking her to school everyday was NOT an option!

Kayla said...

My daughter is very in to drawing rainbows these days and this giveaway would be great for her!

Thanks for doing the giveaway!

Lisa said...

I imagine my son would draw a dragon - he always draws a dragon, although I have yet to see a resemblence of anything even close to a dragon, he still insists it's a dragon! :0)

Linda said...

Let's see......oldest girl would draw hearts, youngest girl would draw the family....the two boys would probably draw cars. lol

Anonymous said...

This is a very cool idea. My oldest sons school used to do this with magnets. It was called Art by Me. My 5 year old would probably do a fall themed pic or hands and feet outlines. Thanks for the giveaway! cdmom

Meghan said...

My niece would draw a duck.

Molly (Mom2Gizmo) said...

My son would draw a dog walking on a pattern path...because he is 6 and all about patterns!! What a great giveaway!
