    I was wondering what everyone uses for smocks in their classroom, or if you even use them.

    Because we use them for both painting and water play, they are used mainly to keep their tummys dry. They are responsible for pushing up their own sleeves. We use vinyl oval shapes with a head hole cut into them. The goal is that my 3's can put them on/take them off totally by themselves.

    We use smock mostly when we paint - do four at a time.
    They still have to move their sleeves up.

    I use old shirts with sleeves cut off. Once a month or sometimes even longer I take them home to wash.

    I use the plastic smocks to paint. We also use mens dress shirts with the sleeves rolled up. No matter what i put on the children they always get paint on themselves. The problem I have with the vinyl ones is that you get paint in their hair and on there face pulling them off. Drives me crazy.

    the smocks I have are long sleeved and go on backwards like a hospital jonnie. that way you pull it off formin fornto of them and they don't get stuff all in their hair as you don't have to pull it over their head.
