Making your Kids Party Favors:

I did this for both of my kiddos parties this year! We did lightning bolts for J’s party (there is a long sob story on why there is no post on that…). For V’s birthday, we had a PJ Masks theme so we did all three main characters and Night Ninja.These fun custom t-shirts make the perfect party favor for your kids PJ Masks Birthday party!

Create a template for your design. Either print something off the internet or draw it out. Using a thicker cardstock will make this a bit easier. These fun custom t-shirts make the perfect party favor for your kids PJ Masks Birthday party! We did Catboy, Gekko, Owlette, and Night Ninja!Tape your template onto a piece of contact paper, cut out, and repeat as needed. When putting your design on the paper side of the contact paper it will be backward. For these shapes, it did not matter, but if you are doing letters or numbers make sure to lay them the correct way before cutting out your template.

Peel off the back and place your design on the shirt. Make sure to press down all of the edges.These fun custom t-shirts make the perfect party favor for your kids PJ Masks Birthday party! We did Catboy, Gekko, Owlette, and Night Ninja!This is VERY important so the bleach doesn’t seep under.

Lay your shirt flat on a cardboard box or trash bag… Anything flat that you don’t mind getting bleach on. Fill your spray bottle with bleach. Only spray 2 or 3 times on the mist setting.

    Justo un time for my daughter’s birthday, she is a Gecko fan. Thank you for the ideas, specially the t-shirts and the bracelets. Regards from México.

  • Angelica

    These are great ideas! I am excited to do the shirt idea. Where did you pick up the base toddler shirts? What are the prices I should be looking for? Thanks in advance!

          We don’t have the rights to give out Disney products… However, if you search google images for PJ Masks silhouettes you can print off the ones you like. Then just tape them down to a piece of cardstock and cut out to create your templates/stencils. Let us know if you have any more questions!

    Love the idea. My son is having a PJ masks themed party so I would love to do this. I have one question…Did you dilute the bleach?

    • Susie

      I did not dilute it. Just make sure you only spray a couple times…. remember you can always spray more 😉 Have a great party!!

  • Wendy R

    What a wonderful idea! Question: does the contact paper stay in the machine when the load is done or does it go down the pipes?

    My 3yo is having a birthday soon and this sounds like a great favor idea since we will have infants to preteens. 🙂

    I came upon this just in time for my sons 5yo PJ Masks birthday party. Bought shirts and all of the supplies. Just started on this to try out with first 100% cotton shirt I ordered off Jiffy Shirts and the bleach doesn’t seem to be working? It’s been sitting on my dark green shirt for over 20 minutes with no change to the color. I verified that I am use regular (not color safe) bleach that is concentrated and I cannot figure out why it is not accepting/changing the shirt. Any ideas? I’m at a loss. 🙁

      I’m not sure why it isn’t working… I have done this process many times with many different brands and colors of shirts without any issues. I know that isn’t any help. Did you get more than one color? If so are the other colors working? I used just regular old Clorox bleach. Could you visibly see that the shirt looked a bit damp after spraying?

    Thank you for this wonderful easy project. We made pj mask shirts for my three year olds bdayband it was sooo easy. I printed the template directly onto “label” paper and cut that out. We loooove them!!
