Quick tip- Sharpie be gone

Had a problem with your little artists in your house not knowing the delicate nature of permanent markers? Luckily it doesn’t have to be too permanent. Hair spray does an amazing job at removing marker from clothing, and actually from walls as well. Make sure to put a paper towel under the fabric you are spraying the hairspray on to catch any bleed through of the marker and to keep from staining any other parts of the material.

What about shaving cream?

Ok, so if we dont use shaving cream for its intended purposes then what do you use it for? Did you know that shaving cream is a wonderful thing to add food dye to and let toddlers play in? Teach them to draw letters in shaving cream is part of multi focal learning, which uses all the senses and helps them to retain what they have just learned! Not to mention it also works pretty good on cleaning up bath tub spills, and making faucets sparkle again!!

Pizza Cutters; The mom of a toddlers BFF

Just because it’s called a pizza cutter doesn’t mean that that’s all its good for. I would that it gets used the least for pizza in our house. The rolling and cutting motion of them makes it ideal for most toddler foods also! You can use them to turn items like waffles, pancakes, sandwiches, fish sticks, any type of meat, and even pies into little bite size pieces for your little ones learning to feed themselves. Our kids are so used to us using a pizza cutter for stuff that the older ones use it on their sandwiches also. The bonus with that being is they are not as sharp as a normal knife and its a lot harder for them to get their fingers in the way of it and cause a painful accident!
