Best Aprons for Kids: For The Domestically Inclined.



I’ve been watching for aprons for the last few months, not because I’ve suddenly transformed into a domesticated house-frau. Rather, I am incredibly tired of making it through the day stain free, only to have grease spatter on my pants while I make dinner. Also there isn’t a lot cuter than little kids in aprons.
I love the simplicity of this Lotta Jansdotter cafe apron. The apron is 100% linen and the hand drawn design is lovely, like all of Jansdotter’s beautiful work.
Two Owls offers a more graphic print full apron for those very messy dishes. These aprons come in children’s sizes as well so you can all match! Or not.
For the resident grill master I like this silk screened apron. Grilling is messy business, if you’re doing it right.
This bright vintage-look apron sort of makes me want to bake you a cake and put it on a milk glass footed platter. Or something along those lines anyways. (via HWTMBlog).
Kids need aprons more than adults, some days some kids seem to need a full body apron. I can’t help you there but I adore this activity apron from m*o*m. The bright gingham and rick rack details, might even lead you to tackle painting with your little darling. Unrelated: my mom has that exact same hanger from her childhood.
Can’t convince your little boy that gingham is all the rage? Here’s something a little more action themed from Williams Sonoma, it screams “Gender Stereotype!” If you’re into that type of thing, otherwise it’s just kind of cute.
Hopefully we’ll be back to Burning Daylight next week, if I can drag the kids away from the trampoline.

    I bought an apron from BellaPamela for a friend who loves to bake. Check out “Eunice” — retro and adorable. (

    I love the vintage apron! Alas, I need a full body apron when I cook otherwise I end up with stains all across my stomach. I buy a lot of plain white “chef’s” aprons so that I can wash the beejeesus out of them. Not very pretty but they are practical.

    I’ve given these aprons as gifts and they are a big hit.

    Aprons are surprisingly big business on e-bay. Search “vintage aprons” and find lots of 10 for less than 20 bucks. I am a huge fan of aprons. I can’t say how many $6 Target t-shirts I have ruined with a teeny little grease splatter. The full aprons are more practical for me, but the half apron styles are usually more awesome. Check it out!

    I just bought a new apron yesterday from Anthropologie. I found a really cute Orange Blossom print apron on sale for $20.

    Aprons are great — I can’t make it through cooking or even just the day without getting seriously smudged, and aprons save the day. I personally have a love affair with vintage full aprons, but that is due in part to the fact that I am a clumsy cook. :)

    For the truly domestically inclined, I just made an adorable retro-style aprona few months back. Butterick has two fabo retro-inspired patterns out and I can’t wait to make them all.

    I purchased a really swell robot apron for my son at Old Navy of all places. It was part of their holiday stuff. Now that he is absolutely into the robot thing I just wish I had thought to buy the awesome robot ornaments they had too *sigh*
