First off, if you have a boy that loves to cook, try making an apron. You can buy plain dark blue or khaki ones at your local craft store. You can then decorate it with appliques or puff paint. Let him decide what he wants on it. Do something that he likes doing or say if you just went to Disneyland, put a Mickey applique on it. Remember, it’s his and he probably won’t like to design it the same way you will so let him pick out everything. He will have more fun and will actually use it then.
