Instructions

Cut shoe organizer across the width, so you have a line of four pockets. (If it holds 12 shoes, this will make 3 aprons).

Measure the child's waist and add several more inches so you can tie the ribbon in the back.

Attach ribbon or strapping across the top of the apron.

Fill pockets with some of Dad's/Grampa's old, cleaned tools. (Maybe paint handles all alike to match, add child's initials).

Add large nails and screws if you think this is appropriate.

Or buy little mini hammers, screw drivers, tape measures, etc. from your favorite dollar store.

If you go to the lumber yard and ask for a few scraps, your little carpenter can get started right away.

Obviously, this is a gift that will require supervision. Something fun for grandparents to help with maybe!
