Cooking and crafts provide countless opportunities for creative learning and loads of messy fun. Stained and damaged clothes are no fun at all, however, especially when laundry time rolls around. In this activity, you’ll re-purpose an old t-shirt into a simple smock, or apron, to use for all your child's cooking and art projects. He'll have a blast doing activities, and you won't have to worry about clean-up: all the mess goes onto the apron, not on your child’s clothes! And because your youngster is in charge of the design, this activity also gives him a chance to exercise his creativity and bring out the artist within.
