Garbage Bag Aprons
and Other Coverups
Here is a quick way to make garbage bag aprons which provide protection for cooking, crafts, and other messy tasks. (See Diagram.)
A Simpler Garbage Bag Apron
Warning: All of these bags are for older children only. Younger children might put them over their faces and suffocate. These are NOT toys. They are only to be used under adult supervision where the adult can make sure the bags are kept away from children's faces.
Old button down shirts. Put on backwards and roll up sleeves if necessary.
If you don't have any old shirts or know someone who does, check out thrift stores and garage sales for cheap ones you can use.
No matter which garbage bag apron or coverup you choose, you will find that they will protect your clothing from any messy activities.
Not only are they quick and easy to do, they are made with things that most people have around the house anyway. No need to run out to the store to get supplies.
They are also disposable aprons so that they can be thrown away when you are done with the mess.
