I was never a neat person before I had kids but for some reason now I am obsessed with it. Not that you could tell if you walk in my house. But that's not my fault. I blame my two boys. Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. That's what I do. I can have a room completely clean and they could destroy it in less than 10 minutes. I guess you could say they have a gift.
Does anyone else have a child that just loves arts and crafts? I just can not keep up with my older son’s demand for it. I also can not keep up with the clean up. I have red acrylic paint stuck in the grout of my kitchen floor. I recently started buying disposible plastic tablecloths (I know its not environmentally friendly) to cover the table tops. Problem is my younger son loves to move the tablecloth around. Finally a solution! Tidy Table Covers. Tidy Table Covers™ fit your table like a shower cap. Made of durable plastic, these disposable tablecloths have an elastic banding that ensures a snug fit. Great for arts and crafts, meal time, parties and on the go. You can buy 3 for $10.99 (less than $3.00 each). Its available in five different sizes depending on the size of your table. If you are interested in getting this, go to mominventedstore.
Frog Pod The second product I found that I loved was the Frog Pod by Boon Inc. In my kids' bathtub, they have the foam alphabet letters and numbers. I bought them because I thought that would be a great way to teach them their alphabet and numbers. Problem is that there are 26 letters in the alphabet and 10 numbers ... yes, 36 pieces that I have to pick up every time they are in the bathtub (in addition, to the other toys they have in the tub with them). I've tried hiding the foam letters and numbers but my kids always discover them and put them back in the tub (no, I can't throw them away - I'm one of those people who thinks that they will need it later). The solution: the Frog Pod. Scoop, Rinse, and Store all with the Frog Pod. The Frog Pod has a built-in shelf for bath products. The Frog Pod attaches to virtually any bathroom wall. The Frog Pod removable scoop provides a quick and easy way to pick up bath toys. The Frog Pod has drain holes in the scoop that allow the user to rinse and drain toys in bulk. The Frog Pod fingers and toes act as pegs for hanging bath accessories. The Frog Pod measures 17" x 15" complete. The Frog Pod scoop on its own measures 10" x 11". If you are interested in purchasing this, I found this for $24.99 and you can BUY IT ONLINE HERE.
I will be sure to share with you any more great products I can find to help ease the chore of cleaning, so check back often.
