Hand Painted Aprons {for Kids and Teachers}

Looking for a fun activity to do with school age kiddos? I love this "Reindeer Hand Print Apron". I saw the idea a few years ago when Afton was in preschool. Now my little Maisy is that age, I wanted her class to make these aprons too.


I bought the aprons at Hobby Lobby. Including the bells, red puff balls, ribbon, googly eyes, and paint-the entire project cost $6 per child for a class of 12 kiddos.

This activity is easy enough, just use 'puff paint' to write each child's name at the top. Then after the name dries, stamp one footprint and two hand prints. After those dry, add the fun details. Eyes, nose, draw a mouth, add some bows, and a bell. I used hot glue to hold on the 'accessories'.


The kids will wear these at their class Christmas party and then they will take them home to keep. Afton still wears hers (and it is 4 years later!). I like this craft because the kids will use the "Reindeer Hand Print Aprons" for years to come.


For the teachers, I made "Christmas Tree Aprons". I sketched out a tree and then painted it with acrylic paint. I added small ornaments with each student's name. And then put the first letter of their first name at the top.


I think they turned out cute. So cute-- I just had to try it on :) I might need to make one for me!


Tis the season!
