My oldest boy is in t-ball right now. While we were at the store, picking him out a glove, he spotted a nice red bat. He really wanted it but we told him no. We had a prefectly good bat at home. Instead, I told him that I could decorate his bat with red vinyl. He was so excited about! All I did was used my outdoor red Expressions Vinyl and cut it out with my Silhouette. I bought both the cardinal and the "go cardinals" images online.
here is the bat before:
And here is the after: Go Cardinals!!
My son always loves having his name on everything, so he of course wanted that.
