    Hi, it’s good post and that’s a good idea to make the toddler keep busy, i do the same with my toddler but unfortunately it won’t long to keep her busy whatever, it’s always work if you need some time to do cleaning or blogging 😀ReplyCancel

    Paint brush markers! Why have I never thought of that?! I always dread the kiddos asking to paint because it’s always a bit of an ordeal, but paint markers would really contain the chaos!ReplyCancel

    • Lindsay - July 20, 2017 - 5:45 pm

      Laura-I’m the same. My kids ask to paint and I’m like…want to play legos? Haha. These will definitely do the trick:) The kiddos think these are truly for painting!ReplyCancel

    I just bought stamp markers and am super excited to use them with my little man! He doesn’t particularly like to color, but I think the special markers will help a bit. And that Target paper serious is fantastic. Thanks for the tips! (I found you through Blogging with Heart. Your blog is beautiful!)ReplyCancel

    These look awesome!! I think my toddler is just starting to be ready for some art, and this is a great place to start. She’s a little bored with my current offerings so this seems like something fun we could explore together.ReplyCancel

    • Lindsay - July 20, 2017 - 5:40 pm

      Brittany, your little will just love them! My Olivia is 21 months old and she has been using the paint brush markers since she was 1!ReplyCancel

    Awesome roundup. We just had our first baby 8 weeks ago! Exciting. But, as a mostly one-income household. That baby detergent isn’t going to cut it long term. Super expense. Bookmarking this post for when we run out of her current one. ThanksReplyCancel

    • Lindsay - May 30, 2017 - 2:37 am

      Oh so glad you were able to read it! I totally understand, sometimes detergent can be so expensive! Definitely look through the list and see if there’s one that will work with you income! Hope all is well with baby:)ReplyCancel
