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.
