Thank you Brawny® Tear-A-Square® for sponsoring this post. Think of all the ways you can Put a Square There!
Back to school can be an overwhelming time. There is so much to accomplish in that window of a few days or weeks before kids rush off to school again. I mean, there are closets to clean out, school clothes to buy. For some reason the end of summer tends to be a time to organize and purge the entire household in order to gear up for a smooth start to those early mornings and busy evenings. As much as we think we are going to spend all summer putting together all of those needed supplies and be done way in advance, it rarely happens. Let’s be real, it’s like saying you’re going to be finished with your Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving, and we all know that never happens.
Many of the moms I know are going the route of the pre-ordered school supplies that are shipped to them or the classroom, but those don’t include a few of the essentials that teachers really need. Every teacher is counting on there being big and little messes in their classroom daily; after all learning is messy. This cute and FREE printable will let you stock your teacher up with a back to school essential while making it fun and letting them know you are ready to learn even if it gets messy! The great thing about the new Brawny® Tear-A-Square® paper towels is that you can use as much or as little as you need for each mess. Choose from a full sheet, half sheet, or even a quarter sheet size that lets you use just what you need without wasting. I really love the quarter sheet option because when I’m not using it to wipe up paint splatter or “hot lava,” it’s all I need for cleaning little hands or wiping down the kids table after lunch. Mary loves to use it in her play kitchen for drying all those plastic dishes.
As a homeschool family, we are always working on exciting (messy) science projects. Just yesterday, we set off a volcano in the backyard and you can imagine how that turned out, not to mention lots of art projects of all kinds. John just finished a week at art camp and he has a new love for watercolors, which is great because it’s part of our new school curriculum. I’m so happy that he’s excited about painting because honestly I kind of want to work on water coloring myself. As we all know, learning and creating can be really messy. I know at our house it always comes with a few drips and spills (and the occasional explosion).
I love that when it comes time to clean up all those fun messes I can choose how much paper towel I need with Brawny® Tear-A-Square® I don’t feel like I’m being wasteful when cleaning up all of our messes both big and small and even with the half sheet and quarter sheets. Brawny® Tear-A-Square® is tough on messes no matter what size you use.
