If you're celebrating Shrove Tuesday by making a batch of homemade pancakes, you'll need to prepare for a little mess. As well as leak and stain-proofing your kitchen, you'll need to protect your clothes too - especially if you're cooking with a child in tow. Sparks and Daughters have designed this practical, Mumma & Me apron set, £39, made from pure natural fairtrade cotton, which can be personalised with yours and your little ones name in pretty lettering.
This is a lovely idea for Mummy and child or Granny and Grandchild to have matching aprons to wear when baking together, from Pancake Day to all year round.
