Kids love to do art projects and help in the kitchen. Unfortunately, they can be messy little monsters while they’re at it. Help encourage their creativity and protect their outfits in future projects with these super-simple kid decorated aprons. My kids had such a blast making these that they also made some for all of their friends. With it being so close to the holidays they decided to wrap these up and give them as gifts but this makes a great activity for birthday parties and other kid-friendly events as well.

Since you haven’t made the aprons to protect them, make sure your kids wear clothes that can get paint on them because they will get paint on them.
Place some fabric paint on the paint pallets. Give the kids some brushes and water and let them go to town on some aprons.
- Once they finished be sure to label which apron is meant for whom so that there aren’t any arguments later.
Allow to dry 24 hours.
Run the aprons through the dryer on a high setting for 30-40 minutes. This will help set the paint on the aprons. Once you have run them through the dryer for the initial cycle the aprons can be used, washed, and dried like normal.
This project couldn’t be any easier and now you won’t have to worry about all of those holiday cookies you plan on making this year. Let the kids put on their new personalized aprons and help you out. Or, if you’re really brave, give them some paper and paint and let them go nuts while you get some projects of your own done. Either way they will enjoy both making the aprons and using them for all of the fun projects you do. You will love all of the memories you make together.
