DIY Coloring Wallpaper

8 Feb

What do you do when there is that certain wall your toddler just LOVES to color on?
Besides the obvious- time out, “no no no”, do the crime pay the time (cleaning it up) techniques?
You may not agree with this as a parenting technique, and that’s okay, I was just trying to survive the weekend with company in the house and not always a watchful eye on my wandering 18 month old who is currently still exploring and adjusting to the new house we just bought…

See? I’m a fun mom!…….. sometimes…… if you don’t count all those times the paper WASN’T there and she got in major trouble and had to clean up the wall art.

By the way, I got the easel paper at Hobby Lobby, $8 for a roll that’s like 2 ft wide by yards and yards long. Couldn’t even tell ya. I have used it a lot, for every banner or sign I make, and have yet to put a dent in my roll. It’s in the art department, by all the paint brushes and real easels.
