Like a lot of parents, I took monthly photos of my babies to document their growth, and now that we count the years instead of months, it's fun to get kids a shirt that they can wear all year long to celebrate their age! My son was so excited to turn four, when I gave him this shirt with a big "4" on it on his birthday he was proud to wear it! I found the above modern "4" shirt by Nor-Folk at Design Life Kids. It comes in black or white and is also available for a 1, 3 or 5, each with a different font. Since getting his shirt, I have found many shops creating cute number shirts and it is tough to decide which will be his "5" shirt! Here I have made a summary of some of the cute number shirts available to make it easy for you to find the right number shirt for your little one. There are options for 1 year olds and all they way up to 10 year olds! Um...thankfully I haven't seen one for my upcoming birthday number...
Etsy shop, Lookie Loo Loo, creates cute personified numbers that are celebrating! How cute is this "1" holding balloons?! Numbers 1 - 6 are available, the "6" is holding a cupcake, and each is printed on American Apparel t-shirts. There is also a funny "7 ate 9" shirt for those older kids! At the time of this post this shop is on a short break as the creator is moving, but check back with them because they will be available again!
Sparkly glitter numbers are available in the color of your choice from Etsy shop, B Sticky. This golden 2 is pretty, but there are 30 colors to choose from if you would like something else! They also have the number 4 listed and the shop owner said she could create other numbers if you need something else, just send her a message. The shirts are created on American Apparel Organic Kids Fine Jersey T-shirts.
Etsy shop, Skip n' Whistle, offers these cool striped number shirts in 7 different colors. The shop owner told me that they can create any number on any color and size. Just send a message to them and they will set you up with a custom listing, or include the number you want with the color information in the notes of one of the other numbers. Here are the links to numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Etsy shop, Random Regalia, offers these "shining" number shirts with numbers one through four.
These cute shirts by Ahoy Amigo do the talking for your child. This shirt may be the right fit for my two year old as it matches how I took each of his monthly baby photos with a chalk board talk bubble announcing his age. These shirts are available in numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 with either a black or a white American Apparel T-shirt printed with water-based ink.
For young kids that are learning numbers, I like the idea of a bold number on their shirt that they can recognize. However, there are cute text-based shirts like "two. cool." or "two. cute." by Etsy shop, Kids Rock Clothing, that comes in black, pink or blue. This shop also makes this "young wild & three" shirt. This High Five shirt, from Etsy shop, Earth Cadets, isn't only for five year olds and is printed with eco-friendly water-based ink which is heat set to remain colorfast.
Language of your choice
Finally, if you're looking for something unique, you can custom order a number in the language of your choice from Etsy shop, My Everyday Design. Here is the listing for the "dos" and the "cinco" shirt. There are over 20 print colors to choose from. Just include your color preference and the word you want in the comments when you order!
