Kick off your classroom-cooking unit by making simple aprons for all. Fold the long side of a kitchen dishtowel about an inch over a piece of cotton cording and stitch along the edge of the towel. Knot both ends of the cotton cording. Tie an apron around each child's waist and let the cooking begin.
