    Default Aprons/bibs for craft activities

    What do you use for toddlers when they do painting/messy play?

    I find some long sleeved aprons are just too stiff and uncomfortable.

    Just a normal apron for toddlers and roll their sleeves up, or remove bulky jumpers first. Parents know not to send them here in precious clothes, we get mucky!

    Moggy and loocyloo, do you mean a sleeveless apron that you tie around the back?

    I've got some long sleeved bibs that I use for messy play or painting for younger children. They're not stiff like the full sleeved plastic aprons.

    For older children I use either a fabric apron or I have some over the head plastic ones. I roll their sleeves up and hope for the best

    Yes, wipe-clean fabric, strap around the neck and ties at waist.

    I use long sleeved material aprons which at present go straight in the wash when a child has used it.
