How to get sharpie marker off your skin, the fastest and easiest way to get Sharpie marker off your child #Sharpie, #DIY, #ParentingTipsSOMEONE found the sharpie maker…. Does he look guilty? ūüôā

All you need is:

Rubbing alcohol, a cloth and a child who found a sharpie (of course your perfect child would never do such a thing, so barrow the neighbor kid)

IF you are a parent and IF you have a sharpie marker in your house even if it is up high and hidden…. without fail ONE DAY your child WILL find it. ¬†It is like trying to hide fresh meat from a bear, they will sniff it out, animal instincts kick in and they will grab the prize when you least expect it. ¬†Oh and all you “non parents” or “new parents” with perfect children. Go right on ahead an judge all of us…. “if you only kept a better eye on your children, or MY child would never do such a thing “. ¬†Well just you wait because the day will come, takes all of 3o seconds, your child finds a sharpie marker once they pop the cap off, it is like an unseen ¬†force comes over them and the NEED to “tat” themselves out with sharpie tattoos is just to strong.

As a Mother of 4 (soon to be 5 anyday) I have been on this “sharpie self expression body art” one to many times. ¬†My first born just got scrubbed raw with a wash cloth and soap in an effort to get it off. ¬†I have tried all kinds of things… till one day I found the MAGIC solution. ¬†My Uncle who sells furniture told me that if I get permanent ink on my couch to use rubbing alcohol to get it out. ¬†WELL my child in not a sofa…. but if I can use rubbing alcohol to clean a cut I might as well try it. ¬†Sure enough it worked like magic, couple wipes ¬†and it is GONE. No sore arms, no scrubbing…. AMAZING!

I have found the FASTER you use the alcohol the better it works.  The longer the sharpie sits on the skin the harder it is to get off.

I hope you find this tip helpful, feel free to PIN it or share!

Strawberries Made From Plastic Easter Eggs

I swear I always end up with way too many of the lovely plastic Easter eggs every year.  Between 3 kids and various egg hunts, grandparents and friends we have more than our fair share of the little buggers around the house!  This is such a fun way to use some of them up and make them stand out!

You will need:

Plastic Easter eggs (if you don’t have a surplus, order some here! Not only are the inexpensive, but they are all pink and that is the color we are using)

black sharpie

green foam

green drinking straw

scissors

hot glue gun

small candy for filling eggs

Begin by making small black marks all over your eggs. ¬†You can do dots or small lines. ¬†I did some of each. ¬†Now, taking your green foam, cut small star like shapes. ¬†These don’t have to perfect stars, they will be the top of your strawberry. ¬†Trim small sections of your straw as well. ¬†This will act of the stem so they don’t need to be very long. You will be able to get several out of one straw.

Turn your egg upside down. ¬†The larger, bottom of the egg will act as the top of your strawberry. ¬†Put a small dot of hot glue on and firmly press one of your green starlike shapes on. Let that set for a moment before doing the same thing with the piece of straw. ¬†This may be trick, as it will be a hollow straw. ¬†Make sure to use a small amount so you don’t end up with a lot of glue seeping out .

Now, fill your eggs with candy. ¬†This would be cute for an egg hunt, in your kids’ Easter baskets, or use them with a small berry basket to brighten someone’s day. ¬†Would be a great teacher’s gift, and doesn’t just have to be for Easter!
