Last night we had all kinds of messy fun!  We like to make crafts for all holidays and season, and last night we did spring crafts!  There were lots of paints involved, and a lot of mess!  The Bounty Dura Paper Towels really helped with the clean up.  When I opened the package, I thought they felt like any other paper towel, but they were certainly more durable.  They didn't tear, they didn't shred, they didn't pill up...they took care of the mess no problem.  I think I even used more than I needed to, expecting them to be like others we have used in the past, as I was cleaning I noticed how sturdy Bounty Dura really are.  They get the seal of approval from me!  Here are some pictures of our finished spring craft projects!

It was a night full of painting fun!  We are ready for spring!

I have a 2 year old and a 5 year old and both LOVE craft projects. Water color paints, finger paints, markers- and it seems like I am always sopping big puddles of paint of the floors and tables. What fun!

We tried out the Bounty Paper Towels for a couple of "accidents". We painted with watercolors and they seemed to absorb the mess very well. However, I was most impressed with them when my son spilled yogurt on the (fabric) couch and I used the towel to not only wipe, but scrub the spot as well. Normally the dollar store towels I use immediately disinigrate with a little scrubbing- but these towels held up great! No mess was left.

I'd definitely reccomend them.

My son is 5 years old and if he can get into a mess, he will. We do anything from crayons to clay pots. However we are a painting family, my son loves to paint any mini project that comes to mind, including his favorite paper mache.

My older dd who is six has always loved painting the most, but both my girls (the younger one is 4) love arts and crafts in general. Especially if it makes a mess! They love to make salt dough cut outs, make jewelry, draw, color, etc.

My son is special needs and 4.5 years old.  He isn't a huge fan of anything messy other than water:)

My 2 year old son usually wears most of whatever art project we do....He likes any art project his big sisters are doing...him and my 5 year old tend to get marker all over themselves when they color especially.

Dd loves doing arts and crafts, especially painting. She does most of it on the kitchen table. It can make for a real mess some days. Bounty DuraTowel comes in handy on those days.

My DD likes to color with markers and I don't mean on just paper either.She will color on herself the walls on anything she can reach if I don't watch her.She is my little messy artist.

I have a soon to be two year old so messes come with the territory here.  She loves everything from coloring with markers to potting plants with mom and dad.  I think out "messy" art project is going to be decorating the easter eggs her grandma sent us.

We homeschool so there's always an art project in the works. We do a lot of painting which can get messy depending on ds's mood.

My 8 year old loves to paint my 7 year old not so much shaving cream art sounds like so much fun and a great sensory project might have to pick some up.
