Arts and crafts with toddlers is rarely mess-free, especially if you bring out the paints. Sew4Home shares a free pattern for making a laminated cotton art smock to protect your child’s clothing during a crafting session. The laminated cotton wipes clean easily. A pocket across the bottom keeps favorite supplies right at hand. It’s shorter in the back for ease of movement, and longer in the front to offer more coverage. Go to Sew4Home for the pattern and tutorial.
