Featured

My kids love playing with everything messy! Finger painting, clay, mud, plain water.

I wanted to have something to protect them and their clothes from it. So I decided to have a plastic apron for them.

I had a lot of plastic bags and as they are not biodegradable we rarely throw them away and try our best to reuse them

I thought that this is a good opportunity to reuse a bag.

Step 4:

Take a ribbon of size bigger than the kid's waist and after reversing the bag, tape the ribbon to it.
We can use short bits of ribbon taped to the ends only or a long piece taped all over the breadth to make it more sturdy.

Step 5: Fix the neck strap
