This apron was made for a coffee bean practical life activity. The kids love to grind coffee beans. There is a 6.5yo girl in my son’s class and she came up to me the other day and exclaimed emphatically, “Tina! This is my favorite apron that you have made!” So cute. I’m actually perfecting my technique and I think this is the best looking apron that I’ve made yet! Only took me 5 aprons to figure out that dang double-fold bias tape.
I asked J to do the coffee bean grinding work this morning when I dropped him off so I could take a picture of the set-up. Doesn’t it look fun? They save the coffee grounds in the glass jar, and use them for the Mother’s Day Tea.
It is wonderful to watch them do their work with such deliberation and care. He put the apron on, went over to wash his hands, made sure to take just “one scoop” of beans. Turned the grinder, opened the drawer, dumped the beans into the glass jar, screwed back on the lid, wiped the grinder bowl with a small sponge, and then folded the apron up and put it back on the towel rack. He was even careful to make sure the grinder was lined up properly on the tray for the next person. So cute!
