We are madly in love with aprons. We have several and use them each and every day and in more than just our kitchen. They're great for adults, but can also be great for kids who are too old for a bib, but could still use a little protection from themselves during activities! They prove their worth time and time again, so click through the jump to see when we put them to use and tell us your favorite time to wear one!
While Feeding Your Children: We put bibs on them and protect our floors, but you know as well as we do, that spaghetti doesn't always stay on the plate!
During Arts & Crafts: You could be doing a project yourself or helping your little ones, either way little bits of string, glue, paper, feathers and glitter and markers are kept at bay when you've got yourself covered!
While Doing The Dishes: Having kids in the kitchen for clean up is a great way to learn responsibility, but it can lead to other messes. Be ready for water over sprays (or an "accidental" water fight!).
In The Garden: It's a great way when you're on your own in the garden, but even better when you have little ones at your side with little (and usually muddy) fingers just waiting to be wiped... somewhere.
During Bath Time: Keep the bubbles and splashing down to a minimum with an apron in the bathroom. It's also a great thing to put on when washing the family pet, inside or out!
While Cooking and Cleaning: This is when you would normally put on an apron and for good reason! It's nice to know your new jeans won't receive any extra overspray from cleansers or even non stick spray in the kitchen!
