My Son Is A GloriousMessMakers


One thing I love about my son is his willingness to do crafts with me. I have never been an overly crafty mom. My idea of baking cookies consists of buying dough, and plopping it on a baking sheet and waiting 20 minutes. But lately I’ve been trying hard because Trace loves crafting, even at the age of nine. 

So that’s what we did today after school. Thanks to Green Works I’m part of their #gloriousmessmakers team, getting perks comes with the territory, including incredible crafts and fun items to use in and around the home to make the long hot days go faster. Today we worked on a new bird house. 

Trace absolutely loves to paint. He’s also keen when it comes to his senses. I hadn’t even noticed the paints which had silly symbols of fruit on them (grape, watermelon, lemon, strawberry) etc… smelled. Yes smelly paints. What kid wouldn’t love that! 

Trace started out painting the sides of the house along with the front and back. He had a clear idea of what colors he wanted to use. I love my 70’s chrome and arborite table, and yet I use to worry when we doing crafts on it that it will stain. Using Green Works I don’t worry anymore. Messes are super easy to clean up, so I can let Trace have a blast! 

After the bird house, Trace wanted me to make some popsicles. Green Works provided us with super killer molds to use. Flavor of choice? Ice – Tea – Sicles, Trace’s favorite drink. He helped me pour the juice and cleaning up was easy using my Green Work All Purpose Cleaner.

    Jodi you’re a great mom. And your son is very adorable. I like the way he has been helping you making that bird house. It’ indeed joyous when kids come forward to prepare or learn something with great interest. You’ve made a very nice bird house there.

      Thanks Alexson, I appreciate the comments. He’s a great kid and loves making stuff. Now if only the cat would stop chasing the birds from their home 🙂

    No seeing the final product? It looks like he was doing really well with his bird house. This maybe a showing of his future career! A painter for houses or something.
