Personalized Barbecue Apron

Materials:

  • Plain fabric apron
  • Fabric paint, or fabric paint pens
  • Fabric crayons
  • Stencils, or foam stamps
  • Paint brushes

Directions:

1.  Wash and dry apron according to directions

2.  Plan with your children what they would like to put on the apron.  Practicing on paper first is a good idea.

3.  Cover your work surface and make sure kids are in old clothes.

4.  If you are using fabric paints, allow at least 24 hours for drying time. Dye crayons are easily sealed with a hot iron and do not require drying.

5.  When working with younger children, stencils or paint sponges may be helpful, or an adult can draw the picture and the kids can paint it.  Simple, large drawings work best.  Handprints are always cute.

6.  Using a fabric marker write the kids’ ages and the year.
