Tuesday Tips Cooking with Kids and More! “Why didn’t I think of that?”

This is the Fifth in the Series: WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?

I am not the most craft oriented person – in fact, I used to dread arts and crafts days at school and am not the grandma who has a multiple of crafts around for children to play with. I would much rather cook, make up stories, create music and sound and song. Fortunately creativity comes in different ways – and someone – it came to me as ‘anonymous’ who is clearly good at arts and crafts, came up with some Ideas to Make Life Easier that are so simple and yet so brilliant. It is like that isn’t it though? The most brilliant ideas are the simple ones – the ones to which you have to exclaim – why didn’t I think of that?!  I  guarantee you’ll be uttering those words more than once at these ingenious little tips, tricks and ideas that solve everyday problems. I will pass them on every Tuesday for the next few weeks. And if you have your own tip that makes life easier, please do put it into the comment section at the bottom of my blog, so that I can publish it and share it with everyone! As I mentioned – this is not my best thing – so I am relying on the collective intelligence of those who are ever so much better at this kind of thing than I am!

Here is a great idea – use the babywipe container to store your plastic bags in – no more struggling to find the open end!

And for those of you who might be finding a sunny place to vacation during the long winter months, pouring Aloe Vera into icecubes is a cool way to help sunburn.

Ever have to try and wipe every grain of sand off a baby’s legs or arms? It’s a nasty job accompanied by lots of crying and complaining. Use baby powder next time – isn’t this a GREAT idea? I always put the little ones in the bathtub after a day at the beach but this is a lot quicker!

Don’t forget to add your comments below with your ‘make life easier’ tips for the ‘craft-challenged’ like myself and others. And thanks!
