Be BRAVE, It's a Jungle Out There Camp T-Shirts

Here's how our camp T-Shirts turned out!

This was my inspiration:

“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said, ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?’
(‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are.)”

To make the shirts we started out with a wax paper template one of the leaders made using her cricket or Silhouette. We painted first with either white or silver paint and followed with a fabric glitter glue and glitter. I bought several colors of T-shirts and let the girls pick their favorites. What a year to remember!
