Cute Aprons-Kids Need a Cute Apron For Crafts
Playdough is a favorite activity to all kids. Unfortunately moms don't love it that much-it tends to remain forever as a dirty spot on the floor. The case is even worse with oil-paints- they stay on the hands, face, hair and clothes. No parent loves cleaning the unyielding spots which unfortunately are an all times kids' companion.
In order to keep your child from all the mess that accompanies painting and modeling, it's a good idea to get him (or her) an apron. There are lots to choose from, and the question is only how to choose. To help you I've put to work my experience as a parent of a very artsy-crafty kid.
When buying an apron for your kid you need to think first what he or she will do with it. Different hobbies require different approach.
Water connected activities require a water resistant apron. These might be nylon, vinyl, or acrylic lined materials. All of them provide good protection. Such activities are washing toys, watering plants, and sometimes even washing very dirty hands.
Another messy activity is painting-no matter if it's done with water, oil colors or pastels-they all leave stains and spots. If your kid is going to paint, especially with oil-paints, he (or she) will need a long sleeved tabard preferably with buttons on the sleeves.
Front pockets are a wonderful accessory for an apron- they gather a bunch of really, really useful things for the young artist. An apron may have none, but the better ones have up to three of them.
There are aprons with adjustable neck strips to fit better the kids' height- but don't worry. In case the apron you like is not one of these try to get the right size-or choose one in which the child cannot trip.
The cute, funny picture or witty words are complementary to the protective features but kids will love the apron exactly for them. Choose a favorite animal, colorful picture for girls or a loved cartoon for boys and you'll have a happy child with clean clothes-which is otherwise a pretty rare coincidence.
