Little Chef Aprons

Getting kids to eat a variety of foods can be tricky.  One of the best ways to inspire them to try new foods is to have them help out and cook in the kitchen.  This cute apron craft is part of our Little Chefs theme.  You can purchase premade canvas aprons at most craft stores or online at Amazon – then use iron fabric transfer paper with our apron printout to personalize each apron.  Check out how to make our Little Chef hat too!


What you'll need:

  • One premade canvas apron – any color

  • Iron on transfer paper (available at most office supply and craft stores) There are two types of transfer paper – one to use with white or light-colored fabric and one to use with dark colors.  Make sure you choose the one that will work with the color apron you have chosen.  If you are using the white version – make sure you print your image using the print mirror image option in your print setting.

  • Scissors

  • Permanent Marker – we used Sharpie brand

  • Kidfunideas  Apron printout

  • Iron*

* have an adult use the iron


How to make it:

  1. Print out the Kidfunideas apron pattern onto the iron on transfer paper following the directions included with the iron on paper.

  2. Once your Little Chef printout is printed onto the iron on transfer paper, trim away excess paper around the design and iron onto your apron following the directions included with your transfer paper. 

  3. Once your apron is cool, use your permanent marker to write your name on the line provided.

  4. You can also use permanent markers to add additional decorations or designs to your apron (Tip: place newspaper underneath your apron so that the marker does not bleed onto your table surface).

If you are making these fun aprons for a birthday party or classroom project, you can make them ahead of time and have the kids write in their names and decorate the aprons with permanent markers.
