A perfect ‘helping hands’ gift from your kids to those who love cooking. Let the little ones’ creativity run wild with colours, patterns and shapes on the aprons.

Preparation Time: 25 Minutes

Makes: 2


  • 2 white cooking aprons
  • Fabric paints
  • Fabric pens
  • Paper plates
  • Old newspaper


  1. Cover a work surface with newspaper or craft paper.
  2. Lay the aprons right-side-up and smooth to make sure there are no creases.
  3. Pour your different paint colours onto separate paper plates.
  4. Gently press the little one’s hands into one paint colour, moving them around until the palms are fully covered.
  5. Place their handprints onto the apron. Avoid splatters by pressing down firmly and lift their hands up slowly.
  6. Continue until the apron is covered with prints, in all different colours.
  7. Using the fabric pens, write names, messages and draw more shapes until you’re happy with how it looks.
  8. Allow the aprons to dry and set for at least 24 hours before gifting or wearing.
