We have to be at daycare in an hour and a half and I can't seem to get this marker off of my 4 year olds face. It looks like tiger stripes. She decided to color herself this morning and I have no idea where she even found a marker. Please help!

Rubbing alcohol. Little on a tissue and it will come right off. Alcohol pads would be better if you have any

Rubbing alcohol or even hand sanitizer.

my 4 yo does this...he colors all over himself and i can never get it off without scrubbing like crazy.  since he acts like he's being tortured when i scrub him, i usually just wash it like normal & let the marker wear off.

Alcohol wipes or alcohol on a paper towel/tissue.

I've actually used toothpaste and it works well. However, the mint flavors can feel very odd to the child, so only use it sparingly.

Also, if the marks are below the eye, rubbing alcohol on a qtip will work. Just be very careful around the eyes, even if you don't soak the qtip.
