What is it about toddlers and crayons and walls? Instead of sharing those colorful thoughts of yours with the doodling toddler, do something really off-the-wall: Get little Sam or Susie to help you make the colorful wax disappear.
Things You'll Need
- White Cloth
- Baking Soda
- Plastic Spoon Or Spatula
- Multipurpose Lubricating Oil
Gently scrape away the wax with a plastic spoon or spatula.
Sprinkle baking soda on a damp white cloth.
Give the cloth to one of your tots and have him rub the marks off.
Dampen a sponge for the other one and have her rinse clean the residue.
Really stubborn marks may require Mom or Dad to spray on a very grown-up product: WD-40 or other multipurpose lubricating oil.
Wipe the wall clean with a damp towel.
Tips & Warnings
- Buy washable crayons.
- Pencil marks can be removed with an artist's gum eraser (available at most art supply stores).
