Some of my fondest memories as a child was going to Indiana to visit my Grandma and Grandpa McCormick. Gowing up, my Grandma always had us painting and creating all summer long. I used to beg my Mom and Dad to let me go visit year after year.
With this and Back To School in mind, I created this Paint Smock using a Men's Oxford Button Down Dress Shirt that I purchased at Goodwill for only $3.50! I used to make these for my students when I taught preschool many years ago; it was a great way to let the kiddos get messy painting and protect their school clothes at the same time. With a small amount of time invested you can create a one of a kind Paint Smock for your child too!
This particular Paint Smock fits a large age range of children.
