They’re smoky and tasty and so much fun...and the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. And as you’ve probably discovered, barbecues can be incredibly messy too! This Fourth of July, why not present your "Head Barbecue Chef" with a personalized, patriotic apron, decorated just for the occasion by your child?
Here’s an apron design that will get those creative juices flowing and those math wheels turning. It’s great fun for all ages, but this activity is especially good learning for first and second graders. Your child will practice patterns and spacing, and handle squeeze bottles filled with fabric paint. Look forward to lots of smiles (especially from the chef!) when you’re done!
What You Need:
- Plain denim apron (available at craft stores and some fabric stores)
- Iron-on applique stars (available at fabric stores) Note: If your local store does not sell iron-on appliqué stars, you glue them with washable fabric glue instead!
- Squeeze-on craft fabric paint in silver and red
