so I picked up Liam at daycare yesterday and they I guess did some art projects.. He comes running to me "look mommy my hands blue!!" :laughing9: He had marker on both hands and a lot of it!!

I talked to the teachers who both said "don't worry its washable"....


any suggestions, its really on good and soap isn't doing it!!

    I find that a little Vaseline or Aquaphor works well. I apply that, then soap and water or a baby wipe. It seems to work pretty well.

    Definitely try a baby wipe. Chas got a temporary Blues Clues tatoo at daycare and Soap and water didn't even touch it. A baby wipe took it right off.
