I wanted each of the kids at the mad scientist party to have a lab coat. But I wanted to spend the most money on experiments, so real lab coats were out of the question. This is the less expensive version.

You will need:

men’s medium size v-neck tee shirts

The shirts that I purchased already had a fold line down the middle of them, so I just cut down the middle on the line. It was that easy. And no, I don’t have orange shag carpet. That is a rug under the shirt. We added simple name tags to the coats at the party. These were just labels printed from a computer.
