Mud Mates Craft Aprons are great for toddlers and young children, either at home or in early childhood education i.e. kindy, daycare or playcentre.  They simply slip on over your kid’s clothing providing full body coverage and nice long sleeves to protect your children’s clothes.

Made from a lightweight yet durable 100% nylon fabric they are water-resistant and perfect for keeping kids dry during water play.  They are comfortable and easy to wear without restricting the child’s movements. Like all Mud Mates garments, they are individually handcrafted in New Zealand, machine-washable and quick drying.

Our art smocks are designed to be a generous fit around the body with an open back for comfort. They have an adjustable velcro back fastening and a snap-domed elasticated neckline to ensure total clothing protection.

    These are fabulous, thank you Mud Mates.

    Our 1 year old loves to go straight to the painting table at our play centre and it’s handy to have such a great apron which is easy to put on once he is already stuck in.

    The Mud Mates craft aprons are very cleverly designed. They have elastic on the front of the neck and around the sleeves to stop paint etc going on to your child’s clothes underneath, they are long (cover their legs as well) and they have two fastening points, a dome on the back of the neck and Velcro across the middle of the back so the apron stays covering their clothes.

    This is by far the best craft apron I have found. It’s functional and it looks smart too.

    These craft aprons are fabulous. A huge saving on washing and fit really well. Great for use with painting, glueing, baking etc Easy to get on and take off and non restrictive.

    My little one has throughly enjoyed wearing your stylish craft apron. The material is durable and easy to clean and keeps my little one very dry whilst playing. The velcro strap at the back allows for a snugger fit (my daughter is quite petit) and the blue colour we choose is gorgeous. Great product- have already recommended many times to other Mums.

    I absolutely love Mud Mates’ Craft Aprons! I first got one for my eldest son to wear while he does his ‘creating’ with paint, glue, sand, mud and even food!
    I found it totally amazing – it kept him clean and dry underneath, even when he played with water! It’s the perfect waterproof apron for kids! I have since brought a smaller sized version for his younger brother and now there is a lot less clothes washing happening in my home! I can relax and let my boys be boys and get messy. I no longer have the worry of knowing that there will be dirty clothes to soak and wash after they have finished playing. It’s made my life easier as a Mum and my boys are enjoying being creative and playing a whole lot more, as they too don’t need to be worrying about their clothes either!
    Thanks so much Mud Mates! Every Mum and every child should have one of your craft aprons! I will be back for the next sizes up next year!

    I love the craft apron! I actually use ours with my 9month old girl for every meal time. Completely covers her clothes and it is super easy to wipe/rinse off. Then it is dry and ready to use at the next meal. Our 3.5 year old also has one for his messy play – so handy to slip on and protect clothes! Thank you Mud Mates!
