Our home is completely empty…like our mattress is on the floor, shoes in laundry baskets by the back door, no barstools, kitchen table, couches, nothing… King has been having a hard time with the change and been pretty bored lately (along with me), so we have been finding fun new activities to do together with all the new added space that we have. We have been having car races down the kitchen floor, running and playing tag, and painting! King some days absolutely loves to paint and make a mess, other days I swear he is terrified of the paint ha. I thought it would be fun to paint some white boxes and package a birthday gift in them instead of wrapping it! Then it is more personalized, has meaning, and King has fun and feels a part too.
Littles fingers (yep! easy right? your little one will love it!)

I buy my white boxes on clearance after Christmas and then store them and use them through out the year for peoples gifts. It is an easy way to save money and I always am in need of a box it seems. Roll out some newspaper or something for your little one to paint on. Next, un-package the boxes and put some tole paint on a paper plate or item of your choice that you can easily throw away. Undress your little so their clothes don’t get ruined and let them go! Simple right? Package them up and surprise a friend, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, or cousins! You can find more fun uses for Scotch-Brite® here!
While painting is fun and exciting, the cleanup isn’t always either of those is it… Well if you have Scotch-Brite® Sponges it makes the process quick and easy! You can buy their Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge that has the green on the back and it will clean up messes 50% faster! Think grout on your tile that your little one just painted on, yep, you’re welcome! I love to use this sponge for places that the paint doesn’t easily wipe off. We also love to use it outdoors, in the garage, etc. For the actual tile squares or my counters, I love to use Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge. It is a non-scratch sponge so I don’t have to worry the entire time that I am using it. Perfection right? What mama has time to worry about that? It also is perfect to clean my non-stick cookwear, windows, showers, and tubs. You thought I was just going to help you clean up the paint mess, not your whole house huh? Well, you’re welcome mama. You deserve an easier clean up.
Sometimes during cleanup, I have the sweetest helper, other times during clean up he is making messes faster than I can clean them up! I am so grateful to have this little boy to clean up after though and make memories that require being cleaned up!
He loves to be where I am and I love that. Whether it is washing dishes with my Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Soap Dispensing Dishwand that have hard to clean sticky stuff of them from dinner that night and little sticky fingers, or chasing me around vacuuming with his tiny vacuum. I love my Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Soap Dispensing Dishwand because it cleans tough messes 50% faster which means more time to make more messes which equal memories!
You can find Scotch-Brite® products down the cleaning aisle at your local Target!
