When I was a little girl, my mom and I used to cook and bake together, wearing matching mom and daughter aprons. We used to make her favorite, Sheperd’s Pie.
It’s sometimes these little memories that create the most impact and also create traditions in our lives.
I think that every child needs an apron for many reasons. Matching mom and daughter aprons or matching dad and son aprons create a special bond between parent and child especially when doing chores or crafts together. Having special aprons make baking or cleaning almost a special occasion, if cleaning can be a special occasion! It’s motivational to have that “special gear” for a specific chore or craft.
Aprons help keep your child’s clothes clean and looking great, especially all these new designs of clothes.
Aprons are not just for the kitchen anymore, when I was little if you were cooking it was an apron for anything else we called them smocks. Long gone are the days of using Dad’s old shirt as a smock, today there are trendy and fashionable aprons that makes wearing them something very special.
There are many reasons to buy a child an apron, girl or boy. From cooking in the kitchen to working in the garage with dad, aprons have come back with fashion flair and wearing matching mom and daughter aprons will have your little one wanting to do her chores in her colorful matching apron.
An Apron for gardening is really great for kids. Not only will your gardening apron’s keep your clothes clean, but they are functional as well. Most children’s aprons, boys and girls, come with lots of pockets.
Your child will be able to hold all the tools they need for gardening and most importantly hold all those little things they find in the garden, just let’s hope it’s lots of rocks and no bugs! With matching aprons your child will want to help mom or dad in the garden.
Playtime is imagination time for children. Even the toughest of boys can play and pretend in the toy kitchen, pretending to be a chef or cook. Aprons protect your child clothes during playtime with the Play Dough, been there done that! There are many types of aprons that are designed for playtime, role playing as a mommy or daddy. Aprons are also made of different materials, even waterproof.
Doing crafts with the kids can one of the messiest things I know. Aprons designed for when kids are finger painting or gluing or just about anything is a great idea. Kids can mess away without having to worry about getting their clothes dirty, not that they worry, we do that all by ourselves. With a Craft apron, kids can have a great time doing the crafts they love.
Family Cleaning Day, do you remember how hard it was to get everyone to pitch in to help out getting the whole house cleaned, or getting a project done? Chances are that even your smallest, will love getting in on the family project when they have their own matching apron to proudly own and wear. They will be very excited and motivated to “get dressed” for the job and sometimes half the battle is over. When everyone is ready to go in the “cleaning apron”, the chores become more organized. Family cleaning day could be cleaning the house or cleaning up the garage.
Instead of using an old shirt for a smock for school craft activities, using an apron is a great idea. They protect the child’s clothes from glue, paint and other craft supplies. There are aprons designed specifically for crafts, you can even have your child’s apron personalized with their name and give them a new sense of pride during those school activities. Craft aprons have lots of pockets and are even waterproof.
We can’t leave the boys out! Even father’s and son’s can have matching aprons to get the job done together. There are matching handyman aprons or work belts that are perfect for the boys to work together around the house, yard, garage or even helping with the cars.
Saving the best for last, aprons in the kitchen. Not only can you get matching mother and daughter aprons but you can get matching mother and son aprons. You can even get matching chef’s hats. What a great time you can have in the kitchen with your children making their favorite meal together or better yet my favorite, Chocolate Chip Cookies. Kids want to look the part.
Cooking and baking together as a family can easily become a family tradition during the holiday’s such as Christmas or even coloring Easter eggs at Easter. So Mom and Daughter and Father and Son can all have their matching aprons and make a truly traditional family meal.
