Probably everyone realizes that parenting is the most difficult task in life. Therefore, if you’re a parent, you’ll be glad to know these tricks that will make taking care of your little one easier!
#1 Create a Playground with an Inflatable Pool
An inflatable pool is inexpensive, takes up relatively little space, and most importantly, creates a welcoming environment for play. Put your kid’s toys in the pool and watch him have a nice time. Such a spike will surely be safe for your child.
#2 Improve Your Morning Routine
Getting your child ready for school can take a long time, but to make it easier, all you need to do is prepare a set of ready-made clothes for your child over the weekend and put them in the right boxes. This way, your kid won’t be roaming around the room looking for outfit, but will easily pick out clothes. You will save a lot of time with this trick!
#3 Make a Bracelet with a Phone Number
In case your little one gets lost in the store or park, she will always have your contact number.
#4 Buy Shoes for Baby, Without Baby
Taking your little one to the store can be an ordeal. A toddler doesn’t want to measure clothes and is interested in everything around, but of course not shoes. If you don’t want to live through this nightmare all the time, measure your child’s foot by tracing it on a piece of paper. Just measure the length of the foot and choose a stick with the same dimensions. Now, when you go to the store, check the shoe by putting the print in first. You can also put the shoe on a piece of paper, this is a less time consuming but inaccurate method.
#5 Store Pacifiers
Due to the fact that the toddler holds the pacifier in his mouth, the hygiene of this item is very important. If you want to store your baby’s pacifiers safely, you just need to use plastic containers. This trick will come in handy especially when you go for a walk or a long journey.
#6 Organize Time at Home
If your child can’t organize his time, you can help him with it. Buy a wall clock and mark the times for homework, play, dinner, bath and sleep.
#7 Use a Baking Sheet
If your child paints, you know that he has to wait until the paint is completely dry before storing that masterpiece on a tray. You can use baking trays for this, which are flat and will hold even larger sheets of paper. Stack one tray on top of the other and set aside until the painterly masterpieces are dry.
#8 Bag your Clothes
Going on vacation with a child is always stressful. On vacation, your little one is bound to get dirty with ice cream or fruit. To separate dirty clothes from clean ones, pack them in a drawstring bag.
#9 Make Slippers Non-Slip
Sometimes the slippers you buy have slippery soles. If you don’t want your child to tip over, just use hot glue to act as a non-slip coating.
#10 A Clothes Roller is your Friend!
This simple device is not only useful for getting rid of pet hair from your favorite clothes. When you’re playing with your little one, you might spill glitter on the carpet. With a roll, getting rid of it will be much quicker.
#11 Cloth Bib
Attach cling film to your baby’s clothes to create a temporary bib to protect your baby’s clothes.
#12 Dish Basket
This is also a great organizer for your baby’s toys. Easily organize pens, coloring books and story books.
#13 How to Get Sticky Hands
This trick comes in handy during vacations and warm summer days. Unfortunately, ice cream on a stick melts quickly and drips all over the hands, where everything becomes sticky. To avoid this, make a hole in a cupcake tin and place it on an ice cream stick inside.
#14 Combat Tough Stains
Create a mixture created with one part hydrogen peroxide and the other part soap and baking soda. Place the mixture on the stain, rub it in with a soft brush and wait for an hour. Finally, wash the garment and you’re done.
#15 Create a Changing Area
Just mount a rail to the wall and hang baskets on it. That way, all the things you need are close at hand and space is saved.
#16 Use a Bed Sheet
When traveling, kids can soil the seat, if you don’t want to pay a lot of money to clean the upholstery, spread a sheet in front of your child’s seat.
#17 Wash the Toys
I’m not talking about teddy bears here, but Legos and any plastic pieces that lie on the floor of your kid’s room for days. Sometimes children put dusty and dirty toys in their mouths. So occasionally collect the blocks in the bag you use when washing delicate laundry and wash the toys.
#18 Make a Bathtub out of a Shower
Kids love playing in the bathtub, if you don’t have one then make one! Just
#19 Use a Basket
When traveling in the car, use a plastic basket to put your baby’s treats in. This way food won’t end up all over the car.
#20 Put Stickers on Shoes
This trick will help your child with which shoe is for the left foot and which is for the right.
#21 Secure Cabinets
Young children are very curious and often open dresser doors. If you want to avoid this, buy dog collars and mount them on the cabinets. Brilliant in its simplicity!
#22 Don’t Lose Your Socks
Every washing machine literally “swallow” socks. To avoid the problem of losing one, use a safety pin.
