Total Time 1 hour
Add a few splashes of fabric paint to a plain canvas apron, and what do you get?
A gorgeous kid creation that will artfully shield Dad's clothes from that messy grill.
What you'll need
- White canvas apron, in Dad's size, available at craft stores
- Masking tape
- Fabric paints of different colors
How to make it
Prewash the apron. Mark off sections of the apron with masking tape, so each child artist gets his or her own tableau.
Kids can sketch out ideas on paper beforehand or go straight to canvas. Themes might include food on the grill, family self-ortraits, or Dad's favorite things. Remove the tape and set the paint according to the manufacturer's directions
