Not long after the review, Nadine, the creator of Doddle Bags got in touch to say thanks and sent us a lovely gift of paints, canvas’s and more Doddle Bags with the paint brush attachments.
Using Doddle Bags
We love painting with Doddle Bags. They are really easy for L to hold and use. They also make cleaning up quicker and easier.
You simply fill and seal your Doddle Bag with paint. Then when you are ready to use them swap the cap for a paint brush. The kids squeeze the paint straight out through the brush ready to use. Afterwards you pop the cap back on and rinse out the brush.
The bags stop any drips, they stand upright so are easy to store and of course stop the paint form drying out.
You can mix different colours in the bags to keep. Add in glitter, glue, water, whatever you need for your project. There is so much less mess to worry about, it makes a toddler craft project far less of a chore.
Toddlers can make a mess of anything
That being said, if you leave your toddler alone to paint for a few minutes whilst you answer an email then chaos will ensue. Because, you know what, it’s still really good fun to paint with your hands and feet!!
Despite what the pictures will lead you to believe it was still really easy to clean up afterwards.
The child was popped in the shower, fully clothed, wriggling, giggling and so painty. Once he was stripped off and washed and the clothes were in the washing machine all I had to do was rinse off the outside of the Doddle Bags and clean the brushes. Done.
We really love our Doddle Bags and I’d definitely suggest checking them out.
Disclosure – we were sent our Doddle Bags and paint as a gift, I was in no way expected to write this article, I just wanted to share our fun.
