Fight Art-Project Mess with Luke & Loolu Accessories

Craft-Time Aprons, Smocks, and Mats

luke & loolu apron and smocks!

It’s snowing. It’s pouring. Being stuck inside is boooooring.

Before you pull out a crafty distraction, protect your kids (and your house) with Luke & Loolu. Made from vinyl-coated fabric, the new collection’s smocks, aprons, and table mats are designed to keep project messes to a minimum.

So go ahead and set the kids loose with glue, paint, and markers; creative offenders easily wipe clean. Pockets on the apron and smock are sized just right for crayons and paintbrushes, and the cheerful prints bring a little sunshine to even the gloomiest of days.

Showing once again that home is where the art is.

Available online at lukeandloolu.com, $11-$24.
