Craft: Handprint Aprons

Craft: Handprint Aprons

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Kids will enjoy making this handy apron. All they have to do is dip their hands in paint and voilá, they've made a great gift with their own "signature" on it.


  • Solid-colored apron
  • Fabric paints
  • Paper plates
  • Fabric pen


  1. Cover a work area with newspaper, and lay the apron right side up. Pour a little paint into a paper plate.
  2. Have kids press their hands in the paint, move them around until the palm sides are covered, then place their handprints on the apron. Continue until the apron is covered with prints.
  3. Write each child's name with a fabric pen under his handprint. Let dry for at least one day before wearing.
