For me, the most memorable and fun moments with my little ones are usually the messiest. We’ve encountered a lot of messy firsts. Instead of worrying about the clean-up, I participate in the fun! I’ve learned to embrace messes big and small because I know Bounty has me covered when the time comes to clean up!
Bounty is there to clean up the messes so parents can enjoy those memorable moments. Bounty is 2x more absorbent vs. the leading ordinary brand and the roll can last 50% longer, so you don’t need to use as much to tackle the food splats, water spills and messy fingerprints.
Messy But Memorable First Birthday Bash
Aric and I were recently invited to the Messy But Memorable First Birthday Bash with Bounty and Kristin Cavallari. Not only is Kristin a designer and a New York Times best-selling author, she’s also a mom of three!
At the event, Attendees and their little ones had the opportunity to get messy by decorating a smash cake, creating handprint keepsakes and making flowers using a Bounty paper towel and some water color.
I think Aric’s favorite thing was getting messy with the paints. He had enjoyed exploring the different colors and textures. When he was done squirting the paints onto a plate, we pressed our hands into the paint and then onto a clean piece of paper to create a fun mommy and me handprint keepsake!
Although Aric’s first birthday was small, it sure was memorable! We didn’t have a smash cake but he did have a cake that he managed to dip his little fingers into. I was excited to see his reaction to his first smash cake. After helping my little man decorate the cake, we proceeded to the high chair…
Let’s just say his cake smash was more of a cake dab. He dipped his fingers into the icing and then wiped them off on the Bounty paper towel that was under the plate. Have you ever met a toddler that didn’t like getting his hands dirty? This was a fun and messy memorable moment that I won’t forget!
Once I gave him a fork, he dug right in! He liked licking the cake and icing off the fork and once he was done, I used a damp Bounty paper towel to clean him up a bit. I was very impressed with how easy clean up was. All we used was a little water and a Bounty paper towel which took care of the rest of the mess in a cinch!
Tips for a Memorable Birthday Party from Kristin Cavallari!
Not only can a little one’s birthday be a memorable milestone, it can be a messy one! Kristin Cavallari has teamed up with bounty paper towels to share some quick tips she picked up while planning the birthdays of her little ones.
Remember Naptime: Most one-year-old’s and toddlers take afternoon naps, even on their birthdays. Try to plan parties around their nap to avoid a major meltdown during the celebration.
Plan for the Cake Smash: Have plenty of bounty paper towels on hand to wipe up the mess. You might even consider having bounty on the floor so the cake and frosting can be easily rolled up afterwords.
Keep it Simple: I’ve become a pro at healthy, easy, kid friendly recipes and a couple of my favorites are oats flour chocolate chip cookies and tacos. They’re delicious and crowd pleasers.
Make a Co-Party Promise: Even the host needs time to enjoy the party, so don’t be shy about asking a close friend or family member to help out!
Stay Ahead of the Mess: Keep paper towels, like Bounty, in different places around the house. It will help clean up more messes quickly.
Bounty understands that life is made up of many “messy firsts.” Because Bounty absorbs the messes quickly, you can enjoy the moment not the mess!
