Decorating a Kid’s Craft Apron

100 4085 225x300 Decorating a Kids Craft Apron

Super cute craft apron that kids can help decorate.

I have to admit that sometimes it’s difficult to get pictures of Dot doing crafts because, well, the kid hates to be dressed.  That also means that she gets pretty filthy when we do some of our projects.  We’ve been able to solve both problems while creating a really fun craft.  We used fabric paints and markers to make her a special “craft apron” that she can wear when we’re doing our “little projects.”

To make this apron for kids, you will need:

  • A kid’s apron (this one was $3 at Joann Fabrics)
  • Fabric paint
  • A fabric marker

You only need a few supplies to decorate a kid's craft apron.

Let your kiddo dip her finger in the fabric paint and stick it on the apron. Two green dots on top of each other make a cute frog.

Dot did hand prints on her craft apron, which is so fun because we can compare them as she grows.

Of course, you can decorate your kid's craft apron however you want.

After the paint dries, add eyes and smiles with your fabric marker.

The craft apron looked a little plain, so we added some words with the fabric marker.

What I Learned the Hard Way: Kids hate waiting for paint to dry.  ;-)

  1. I really like the design you made. I would like to buy some new aprons for my kids to decorate.
