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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Needed
1. A plastic bag
2. Cutter and a pair of scissors
4. some ribbons that are long enough to fit the kid's waist and neck
Cut the bag's sides, leaving the base intact, so that the apron's length can be adjusted according to the height required.
Step 3: Cut the Base and the Neck
Measure the length and cut the base at the level you want.
Cut the sleeves and the neck according to your preferences.
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
Tape a ribbon to both the ends of the bag's handle, making sure that the whole loop passes through the head of the kid.
And IT'S DONE!!!
