Planeteer shirts for Earth Day

I originally shared this post almost a year ago an I had almost no followers then so I thought in honor of Earth Day (Monday April 22nd) I would share it with you all again.

Am I the only one who sees any holiday, big or small, as an excuse to make my kids a new outfit? Captain Planet was my favorite super heros growing up so I hope you enjoy.


Yes, I am referring to Captain Planet and the Planeteers. My girls and I are huge fans. Since Captain Planet is from the early 90's you can't really go to the store and grab a Planeteer shirt. So I decided to make one for the girls. Here's my little Planeteers.

(this is one of my first attempts at Photoshop an image into my picture. Be forgiving ;) )

If you're a Hub watching Planeteer too here's all you need to make one. If you follow my blog you already know that I'm a big fan of painting shirts. :)

Instead of a stencil I just traced a bowl to get the shape for the yellow center and a small party plate for the outer black ring.  

Then I googled the design of the Captain Planet emblem and painted it on free hand. You could also use the edge of the plate to get the shape of the emblem as well.

The girls were super excited to try them out on their favorite color shirts. We picked the shirts up at Joann when they were having a 2 for $5 sale.

And then they enjoyed the awesomeness of their Planeteer Ring(pops)

Just like any good planeteer they even called Captain Planet to help clean up the trash in the park. (we really did pick up the trash left at the park. Maddie said they had to since they were Planeteers)

Hope you enjoyed my post from the past. It's definitely one of mine and the girls favorites. Are there any other Captain Planet fans out there?

  1. So glad you gave this post new life this year. I hadn't seen it before. This is hilarious. I loved your photoshopped captain planet. The shirts are almost as adorable as your girls. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face today.
