It's such a brief phase when they want to clean

Alice drew all over herself with a marker this evening. I managed to persuade her to take a bath, which got most of the marker off. While I was watching her play in the tub, she engaged in a washing game where she would dump water out of a container on her face, then rub her face with a wash cloth. She actually managed to get some dirt off.

At least it looks like she kept her shirt clean. At our house, Alison and Isaac do this to themselves frequently. The Sharpies are kept behind lock and key.

We have to let her have something so she can do normal drawing (you can see some work in the foreground). I was actually surprised that I was able to get her cleaned up except for some redness around the knees with a single bath.

We let them have water-based markers, as long as they don’t mind getting dunked in the tub when they use themselves as a canvas. Could the popularity of tatoos have anything to do with this?
