Feel like your child spills more of their beverages than they drink and leave you with a mess to clean up? Then this little trick is perfect for you! Buy some crazy straws and swap them out for regular straws in your child’s favorite drink.
Put them in upside down, so your child won’t be able to pull them out and cause a mess.
Easy Door Stopper
It doesn’t matter how many times you tell your child not to lock the bathroom door, somehow, they end up locked inside at least once. Instead of going through the trouble of removing the lock, simply use a rubber band on the doorknob.
It will keep the door from closing fully, meaning your child is never locked in.
As kids get older, they don’t really need their pacifier as much, but use it more out of habit. That doesn’t mean it is easy for them to give it up though. To make the binky less appealing, you simply cut away a small piece of the nipple.
They won’t enjoy sucking on it as much and might even decide to get rid of it themselves.
It’s no surprise that kids have a lot of energy and are always looking for something new to do. If you are looking for a way to mix things up, you can make your own racetrack for them using your carpet and masking tape.
They can use the toy cars they already have, the variations are endless, and the tape won’t hurt the rug!
Keep Your Apples Fresh
Do your kids love apples but refuse to eat them by the time they open their lunchboxes because they are brown? Here is a quick fix for that: after you cut them up, add a pinch of salt and then mix them up with water.
The salty taste will not linger, but the chemical reaction will keep them fresh all day!
