Turkey Hand-Print Apron

 

This personalized apron would be perfect for mom, dad, or grandparent, or kids to make one for them self while waiting for dinner to be ready. 

Seriously, it’s the BEST gift ever!!

You could  write the child’s name and year under the hand-print and even a few things they are grateful for. An older child can write it them self.

With the round sponge daubers, let the kids randomly make circles of different colored paint. 

This can be done before you create the turkey or after.

If the kids are older, they can make the turkey them self!

Allow the apron to dry completely. Sitting overnight gives best results.

When laundering, do so according to paint instructions (usually in cold water and hang to dry)

ENJOY the memories and fun with the family!
