Craft time is a favorite amongst children, so why not channel some creative enthusiasm into making some DIY kids' clothes? Youth fashion is playfully experimental, and the young wearer always wants some say. Whether you give your tween a helping hand, or encourage your adolescent to get imaginative, there are plenty of do-it-yourself ideas to fabricate fabulous and singular wardrobes.

Shiny embellishments and tie-dye are great go-tos for artistically altered ensembles, but how about homemade silkscreening and stitching on pockets? Parents with a knack for knitting may be able to tackle a superhero-inspired sweater or a lovely embroidered T-shirt. Stamping, patching and painting are some of the most fun techniques for producing DIY kids' clothes, but the inspirations are endless.
