i know I sound like one of those awful braggy mums, but seriously, I have cool kids!!!

My kids are awesome.

I don't write about them much here because I feel a bit uncomfortable with the "kid thing" online, but I will tell you I have a 6 year old and a 2 year old who are completely and utterly besotted with the Beatles. You have no idea how happy this makes me!! Little Miss 2 year old has completely bypassed the Wiggles and Hi-5 and God knows what else is out there (I try not to know!) and requests nothing but the Beatles and occasionally Missy Higgins and Kate Bush. Mr. 6 year old is madly into the Beatles, and has also been known to request a bit of Death Cab for Cutie, Ben Folds and Dave Bowie. Anyway, I think my kids have pretty cool music taste!!

Yesterday they made these cute Beatles T-shirts for themselves with Mr. Coleman (did I mention he's pretty awesome too!?) He found some old iron on transfer paper that had been lying around the back of a cupboard for years, and the kids picked and printed a picture online and then he helped them make these cute little Tees.

(Coleman Jnr went for a Ringo pic)
 (Miss Coleman preferred the group shot!)

I’ve never used iron on stuff before, but these have come up really well. I reckon the simple black on a plain coloured t-shirt, and would make a really cool gift for a hip little one in your life, with a picture of something they love. Give it a go!!



  1. Wonderful! Need I say more? xo

  2. That is really cool thanks for sharing the idea and your cool kids. xx

  3. The transfers turned out really well....great gift idea.
