Yikes-creative 1 yo

My 1 year old decided to be creative today on the arm of the couch

I usually use rubbing alcohol to get stuff like this out of the microfiber couch but I'm out and keep forgetting to replace it. I don't use hand sanitizer so the next best thing-baby wipes. Thankfully they worked.

Had anyone else had to deal with their child's creative side?

I think I've used wipes on something like that before which is funny because I know I buy the ones without alcohol or anything like that in them.

Ronin decorated my fridge. It came off easy but I searched the house high and low for all crayons, markers, pens and pencils! They are safely out if reach now :)

Both of my kids took sharpies to the walls and furniture. My dd covered the whole kitchen and ds did the rest of the house. Everything came off besides on the painted walls.

I usually get the alcohol free ones but didn't even check when I picked up these and they do have alcohol in them, unfortunately.

When my son was 1 he black sharpied my bedroom. Walls, furniture, door! I dont know where he got the sharpie, didnt even know we had one. It came off the walls. The door and furniture it is still on. The wood was untreated and it soaked right in. He is 10 1/2 now.
