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. The aprons are unisex so they can be personalised for a Grandad and Grandchild too. The set includes one adult and one child's apron and you have the option to add an extra adult and child's apron too.
