Thanks to Bounty for sponsoring this post! It was a lot of fun to partner with a brand we love in our house!
My little ones are all over the place these days. At 3.5 (x 2) and 7.5, their attention spans are short and easily excited. They switch from activity to activity a hundred times a day (staying on each one for ten minutes at a time… which means major messes OFTEN). But, as I learn to embrace grace, not perfection as a mama, I’ve become more comfortable with the constant mess that comes with real creative play.
When Bounty reached out to me and asked if I’d share a few of my favorite Spring Cleaning tactics (and how we use Bounty in our house), I immediately thought of the obvious tasks I use Bounty Quick-Size Paper Towels for wiping down surfaces, but also thought about keeping these little guys entertained while I got this housework done! :) Whenever it’s time to dig into wiping down the pantry shelves (I do not understand WHY it gets so dirty in there) or finally cleaning the high windows we have (break out the ladder!), I pull out our arsenal of fun crafts and easy, inexpensive activities to grab their attention and let them get messy.
Here are my four favorite go-to, slightly messy activities:
What I’ve realized over the last few years is that fun play (even when you’re stuck inside) is better when it’s messy. When my kids aren’t afraid to make a mess, they dig in, focus more on being creative, and let their imaginations run wild. As soon as they’re finished, they get some quiet time and I get to cleaning up (and celebrating my Spring Cleaning victory!). Here’s my trick (we do most of this around our kitchen island): move the barstools out of the way, wipe everything onto the floor with a paper towel and sweep it up. Then wipe down the counters. Easy peasy!
Stock up for spring with the New Bounty Quick-Size Paper Towel rolls available on Amazon. (They have about 80 more sheets than the regular Select-A-Size rolls and last so much longer!) Bounty is offering a $5 savings on a Family 16ct Pack with code 5QUICKBOUNTY (and you can save an additional $2 on the product page as well)!
