Smart mum shows how to do adorable keepsake art with your kids but with ZERO mess – there’s no brushes to wash either | The Sun

A MUM has revealed how to make stunning keepsake artwork with your kids without any cleaning up.

The woman, called Amber, shared in a video on TikTok her clever idea for a fun and easy playtime activity at home with her baby.

In a post, captioned "let’s paint (mess free)!", the mum documented her go-to "rainy day activity with my baby girl".

She began by adding little amounts of different coloured paint spaced out on some white card.

Next, Amber carefully covered it in cling-film, and got her little girl pressing from the 'clean' side – meaning there was zero mess or paintbrushes to wash up.

After leaving it to try, she then framed it and placed it on her dresser, creating a stunning keepsake artwork.

And a fourth added: "I love this idea 🙂 thank you!"

However, fellow social media users suggested another way to do the mess-free painting that might be better than cling-film.

One recommended: "I do this with a zip lock bag 🙂 I hate messy activities!"

Another shared: "Use a zip lock bag 🙂 much more secure than cling wrap :)"
