Fab Family Fun: Mother’s Day Aprons
Here is a homemade Mother’s Day gift idea!
What you need:
A solid colored apron
Acrylic Paint, colors of your choice
Lay the apron out flat on the table (or outside on the patio if the weather is nice to avoid a kitchen mess) and have your kids dip their hand in acrylic paint. I just squirted some onto a paper plate and had them stick their hand in it and swirl it around a little to make sure all their fingers were covered.
Next, have them stamp their hand onto the apron. As you can see, my little one had a hard time and wouldn’t open his hand all the way, but we did what we could! If you have several children, or their hand sizes are similar, you can write their names with acrylic of puff paints under their hand prints.
Acrylic paints can be found for under $1 at any craft store. If they’re not already on sale, use the 40% off Michael’s coupons from the Sunday paper to get an even better deal.
The apron in the picture is from Target, and was $14.99. You can find them at Michael’s for as little as $4.99, but there is a clear difference in size and quality. I think $20 is a reasonable amount for a Mother’s Day gift, so I bought the better ones. But if you’re looking for the least expensive option, it’s out there! This one we made to be used as an apron. If you’re making it more for a kitchen decoration, the smaller one will work.
In case you’re wondering, it has been washed and the paint has not come off at all!
