Crayon Aprons - The Toolbelt for Those Who Love Coloring

Updated on April 5, 2013

Every crayon deserves a pocket!

Do you have a little one who loves coloring? A crayon apron is a cute and fun gift that can make a child feel like they are a grown up crafter. They'll be so proud of themselves in their very own apron made especially for them.

I remember how much my sister loved her crayon apron when we were kids. It made her feel like a professional "colorer".

Give your budding artist a boost with a crayon apron.

      My crafty daughter makes a fabric notebook with pockets for pencils on one side and a nice pad of drawingpaper on the other. I like this idea for her wee one, so she can carry her art all over the house. Blessed by the Coloring neighborhood Angel ...
