As a mother who considers herself artistically inclined, I was thrilled when my youngest child seemed to be as interested in art as much as I am. What I wasn’t so thrilled about was the total mess my 3 year old makes as she is honing her skills. I don’t know what I was thinking, but the first time Ariella decided to paint I got distracted and walked away for what I swear was only 30 seconds. I come back to see her covered with paint, the table covered with paint, and the floor covered with paint. It was a total disaster!
After that huge mistake I quickly learned to put down newspaper when inspiration struck and she wanted to do an art project. The only problem was, most of the time the paint went through the newspaper and ended up creating a big soggy mess! I swear it was even worse than no paper at all! So in a fit of desperation I grabbed my Glad Press’n Seal hoping it would stick to the table and create a plastic barrier that I could just pull up and toss when Ariella was finished.
And guess what? It worked! It was like the clouds opened and the angels sang to me as I quickly cleaned up her “disaster”! I had dreaded art time with my daughter because the clean up was such a pain. Now I could just peel off the plastic and throw it away! It was amazing!
The best part was, if by some miracle she didn’t make a very big mess I could just leave the Glad Press’n Seal on the table after a quick wipe up!
Another bonus was figuring out if I covered the leftover paint with the plastic, it would stay wet for a few days, so I didn’t have to throw it way each time Ariella was finished. This has saved me a bit of money when it comes to art supplies.
So if you have kids who love to create messy art projects, I highly recommend using Glad Press’n Seal to help keep your table clean and for a super easy clean up!
