What’s something you do daily with your kids? Around here, we paint. We paint and we make a mess. And mama cleans up. Every single day. Sometimes my little artist Zoë will spend hours with her brushes painting. That’s lots of paint, lots of paper and sometimes canvas. We do structured projects but mostly it’s pure unguided fun. Baby E wants to get in on the action but he’s still in the eat everything phase so mama has to get creative. And by creative, I mean edible finger paint.

Our go to edible finger paint ingredient is yogurt. Why? I don’t have to make a big project out of it. I don’t have to cook and cool anything. Plus no kid wants to wait any amount of time when paint is involved. Baby E’s very first masterpiece hangs proudly on our fridge just waiting to be framed. All made out of yogurt and food coloring. Now that’s he’s a bit older, I’ve changed up the formula a bit. Yogurt + Kool Aid makes for vibrant edible finger paint.

Painting is fun, the cleanup is well worth the joy I see on their faces. I keep WaterWipes on hand for quick cleaning. I love that they are made with just two ingredients. 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. That’s it! As far as tots are concerned, wipes are like a Popsicle. I’ve never met a tot that’s doesn’t enjoy sucking on wipes. They also love wipes for any and everything else. Attempting to wipe their own faces, clean their teddy bears or just because. I hope they are into cleaning a few years from now. LOL.

Wipes are in the top 5 things a mom must have handy at all times. I keep wipes in just about every room in the house. Knowing that WaterWipes are a safe product for my kids sensitive skin, I am happy to take the 30-minute drive to Babies R Us to stock up on our supply.

I keep a stash in the car, a baggy in my purse and of course a pack in our diaper bag. Yes, a whole back because toddlers! I use them for the kids, quick spills in the car and for myself too. Use WaterWipe the next time you need to remove makeup 🙂 Thank me later.
