Life can get messy!
Especially when you have little ones at home. So, whether you’re a busy teacher, parent, grandparent, or find yourself hosting kid’s craft time, you’re going to love this easy messy craft hack!
So what is a “messy craft hack”, you ask? 🤔
Adding Glad Press’n Seal to your wardrobe! 🙌
I know… it sounds a little crazy! But have you ever had to deal with the hassle of putting an apron on kids, especially when they don’t want to wear one. And chances are if you did get it on them, they want to take it off within 5 minutes anyways and the contents of all your DIY craft ends up on their cute outfit.
Not anymore, my friends!
This hack is so simple!
All you do is pull the plastic Press’n Seal out of the roll and put it wherever you don’t want the mess to go! I even put it on the top half of my daughter’s pants so it would catch any drips of paint while she was sitting.
Here’s something to consider when you try it out:
When we first attempted this hack, I just stuck the Glad Press’n Seal right over the arms and thought I would get creative and cut the arms out to save on plastic. But seeing as though we were planning to paint, this wasn’t the most effective or easy way to put it on…
Instead, just wrap it all the way around their arms so it will catch the mess on all sides.
And, if things are getting really messy, consider also wrapping the Press’n Seal all the way around their belly so when their arms are down by their side, the sides of their shirt are still protected.
My daughter had so much fun doing her craft and the Glad Press’n Seal didn’t get in her way at all while painting.
Best of all, it actually protected her clothes and when it was time to take it off, she had so much fun helping peel the mess away. The Press’n Seal protective layer stayed secure during craft time, but came off super easy when we needed it to! 😉
