#1 Use a makeup brush or a blending sponge to apply sun screen on your kids
This hack is squirmy ánd battle proof and gets the job done quickly! You can make it even more fun for your little one(s) by letting them apply it on you too.
#2 Set up a toy, reading and craft corner in a circle to keep your little one’s interest piqued
And get yourself some me-time
#3 Put a box or basket in the kids’ closet to put clothes in that are too small
Save yourself lots of time later on
#4 Use baby powder to get sand of your little ones’ feet
Going home after a day at the beach got instantly smoother
#5 Leave a basket on your stairs or somewhere in the corner and save up everything in there that you’d like put away
This will save you lots of trips, as you put away everything at once
#6 Teach your kids to open up about feelings, by sharing yours when you’re feeling sad
The best way to learn is by example
#7 Get your children to eat vegetables by putting a platter on the table with colored veggies half an hour before dinner is ready
- making them a smoothie with vegetables
- letting them help you prepare the vegetables for dinner
- letting them help with growing vegetables
#8 Keep a small ‘oops’ bag or box in your car with daily necessities
Always prepared for anything
#9 Freeze aloë vera gel in ice cube trays to rub it on cuts or sunburn
It’s the best remedy for itching
#10 Tape bubble wands upright against something sturdy
And your job is done: no more mess with spilled soapy water or having to help with the wand.
#11 Whenever you’re having a stressful day write down one good thing that happened that day
This moment of self-care will brighten up your day instantly
#12 Fill a baggie or see-through plastic bag with water and confetti. Seal the bag tightly and tape it to the high chair or on the dinner table
With this DIY sensory play your little one won’t mind to sit down for dinner
#13 Prevent tantrums in the store by “texting Santa” to put it on the Christmas list
Make sure to take photos of it so you’ll know what to get for their birthday and the holidays
#14 Roll up your baby’s snap-front outfits all the way to the back during diaper change, so the back goes into the back and you can put your baby’s arms in one for one. Then snap it to the front.
This way you constrain your baby's arms and hands from moving as you change their diaper. No mess guaranteed!
#15 Feeling guilty about letting your little one(s) have too much TV time?
Mute the TV, turn on the captions and… voila, they’re reading!
One less thing to worry about ;) And we can thank TikTok mom @Sarebear_13689 for that!
