My husband and I are huge history buffs and love sharing stories about our country’s early icons with our son. One surprising and simple way to incorporate American history into our daily lives is with clothing! Clothing is a great subject starter and kids love talking about who and what is on their shirts, so you can image my excitement when I came across Okllo! This genius company based out of LA (but they like to think of America as their home) has created an inspiring line of children’s shirts called The Great Americans. This line is aimed to inspire kids about their own life and the potential it may hold. There are so many great Americans to choose from, including Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, George Washington, and more!
Typically you see children with licensed characters on their clothing, but why not sport some of our great contributing predecessors? This gives parents a great opportunity to teach their children valuable history lessons. Imagine your little one sharing with their friends some truths about “Honest Abe” or informing others about the brave general, and first President of the United States, George Washington. These smart and stylish shirts are 100% cotton and made in the U.S. We are so happy with our Abraham Lincoln shirt that we are picking up a few more for Christmas! These are not only great for little boys but Amelia Earhart’s inspiring story with inspire your little girl too! Also, from now until the end of this year Okllo is donating 10% of their sales for all Great American’s shirts to the National Military Family Association. Being a military family ourselves, it feels great to know that there are companies out there like this one supporting us in a tremendous way! Okllo is offering our readers 15% off all items.
