The magic of spray bottles

Cleaning the floor with spray bottles

I pulled out these spray bottles on an exceptionally grumpy day. Emma and Johnny got pretty into cleaning the floor with them, but then started spraying other things. So we moved outside:

Where Johnny was especially interested in spraying me:

But eventually got to work cleaning off the paint he had put on their little climber:

Lily thought it was pretty funny to see her brother and sister so excited about a couple of spray bottles!

  1. How little is needed sometimes to turn a grumpy day into a happy day. Spray bottles are popular here… for outside work, of course.

    1. @Our Nifty Notebook – Emma loves her silly bands. So far she is content with the few she has acquired from friends, luckily =)

      @Elisa – I think there’s still a little stuck in between the letters that he didn’t spray all the way off…

    That shot of Johnny spraying you is PRICELESS as is the one of all three of them together after you got them outside. Great idea for diffusing a grumpy situation.

    Did Johnny get all the paint off the little climber?

  3. Spray bottles really are great value aren’t they. I hand mine an enjo glove as well and get my windows cleaned, well at least the bottom bits of them anyway lol!

  4. I love the spray bottle as well. I have a 4 year and a 20 month old and I give them the bottle and a cloth each and they go around the kitchen finding little spots to wipe up!!
